LONG LIVE THE KANE, Big Daddy Kane
Big Daddy Kane
Long Live The Kane the debut album from my first ever favorite rapper Big Daddy Kane is a undoubted classic hip hop master piece. This ten track banger was released in 1988 on Cold Chillin’ Records and was produced by Juice Crew maestro DJ Marley Marl. Not only did this album shot BDK into the hip hop hall of fame but it also provided the sound track to many of my teen years.
Every aspect of this album epitomizes Big Daddy’s Kane’s iconic style and swagger, from it’s so memorable cover, it’s title, both supporting lyrical content that helped establish Kane has one of the most influential hip hop artists of his era and if not of all time.
Ten dope cuts make up Big Daddy Kane’s legendary first album with four released has singles. From the hi tempo hip hop dance track ‘Set it off’ to the smooth laid back ‘Ain’t no half stepping’ Kane displays potent delivery, phenomenal word play, hard hitting punch lines, on songs with solid concepts and varied subject matter. Look out for a guest appearance from fellow Juice Crew member and hip hop icon Biz Markie on track 8 “Just Rhymin’ with Biz” one of my personal favorite joints on the album.
Long Live the Kane is a classic album that is a must for any hip hop collection and one that is definitely worth checking out or revisiting.
Long live Big Daddy Kane a true hip hip icon.
