Biz Markie (of “You Say He’s Just a Friend” fame, which is also a very good karaoke song and has an amazing video that you should watch as soon as you’re done reading this) will DJ Dockers Fall 2011 preview party, Elle.com is reporting. Sadly the event is closed to the public.
Musical performances often accompany fashion events but they’re usually beautiful young super hip acts like The Like or Florence and the Machine or Oh Land–not a rapper infamous for a 1989 hit in which he sings off key. But that’s what makes this whole thing kind of genius. Screw the musical ingenues, just call me Blah Blah Blah.
So how exactly did this magical fashion pairing happen? According to a Dockers rep:
“Biz Markie is a classic. He’s a good representation of an Alpha male who embraces passion, a certain attitude and individualism. He fits well with the new Docker’s Alpha khaki that’s launching for Fall 2011 — classic, versatile and the first of its kind.”
