The Biz Never Sleeps (1989)

Goin' Off is the debut studio album by Biz Markie, released in 1988 by Cold Chillin' Records. The album was entirely produced by Marley Marl. The album was praised for its wit and humor, and showcased Biz's talent as a beatboxer on the song "Make the Music with Your Mouth, Biz". Big Daddy Kane wrote the lyrics of the album's first five songs.

In 1998, the album was selected as one of The Source magazine's 100 Best Albums. In 1995, the album was reissued, but replaced "Make the Music with Your Mouth, Biz", "Biz Dance" and "Nobody Beats the Biz" with Marley Marl remixes.
