Rolling Stone - 9/30/93, p.1013.5 Stars - Very Good - "...with none of the epic size of most modern image- and production-conscious rap, Biz is the underdog you love to root for....he's as funny as anyone in rap and invites you to laugh along..."
The Source - 7/93, p.653.5 Stars - Very Good - "...the diabolical one manages to capture the essence of that good ole hip-hop funk while continuing to lockdown the hearts and tape decks of rap music lovers worldwide...you can tell your moms that the funk is back..."

Chastened by his court battle over a sample from pop crooner Gilbert O'Sullivan, Biz Markie returned with All Samples Cleared!, a safe record, both legally and artistically. Sampling conservatively, Markie nevertheless opened with a forceful statement of purpose ("I'm the Biz Markie"), but elsewhere hoped for another hit with the same blend of great storytelling and artless balladeering that had made "Just a Friend" his only Top Ten hit. "Young Girl Bluez," one of the few outside productions, was a solid return to form, but his reinvention as a disco diva for "Let Me Turn You On" was a step too far. All Samples Cleared! had a few amusing songs, including "I'm a Ugly Nigga (So What)" and "The Gator (Dance)," as well as an interesting blend of humor with social topic ("Hooker Got a Boyfriend"), but for the most part Biz Markie was keeping his head down, and it showed. ~ John Bush
