  • Brodie

    I like seeing an Unsung like this where it doesn’t end with drugs or death. Glad to see he’s still doing it and that stuff he’s doing with the live band sounds pretty dope

    THIS NIGGA IS NEVER MENTIONED WHEN U THINK ABOUT GREAT MC’S!!!! KANE DID IT ALL!!!! HE’S RESPONSIBLE ON HOW JAY RHYMES AND HOW BIGGIE RHYMED!!!!

    …..SALUTE TO BIG DADDY KANE!!!!

    DON’T HATE ON MY OPINION!!!!

  • Shawn

    Good look for Kane, who’s Career just took a “natural” course.
    Really wish they’d asked “Playgirl!!? Son, what was you thinking”

    A lot of those artists from those days dont have a happy ending. Case In Point: Alexander O’ Neal

  • 1975

    I saw him perform as a shortie in Randall Island Park NYC in 1988. Linden Day Camp surprised us some of us ran to the stage and the camp counselors had to get us. Memory Lane LOL

    When GZA and Big Daddy Kane were signed to Cold Chillin Records, GZA ghostwrote Big Daddy Kane’s lyrics. This is why he is never mentioned when I think about great MC’s.

  • easternparkway

    Wolverine—I’ve never heard that, doubt it highly. Are you talking about his early work? BDK’s style is too unique. Either Rza wrote all of them or none of them…..

  • NY is HARD!

    TOP 5 D.O.A!!!!Hands Down!!!!

  • Jersey

    Wolverine is starting bullshit ass rumors…

  • Belize

    yes, REAL RAP!!!!

    I always told ppl that the strong usage of RnB hurt Kane in the long run, plus he stop messing with Marley Marl and then Marley put LL back on the map with MAMA SAID KNOCK YOU OUT.

    Kane is still top 5. Ra and Kane took pop shots at each other but they didn’t discuss that. That would have been the ultimate and most explosive battle in hip hop history. But like they said “ppl didn’t call out Kane cuz they knew.”

    Plus giving Jay platform was a good idea from Kane. Kane saw the future in that slim kid from Marcy.

    Shout out to Word and James. They probably gonna pop up with that hate, but if not, F it!

  • THE AUTHENTIC NICKEY BLACK

    Yeah Storm…, oops I mean Wolverine is looking for attention and I guess that BS worked.

  • DMJ

    Great to see this posted. A lot of “hip hop fans” need a history lesson! Kane was a true pioneer and this showcases a time when it was cool to just rhyme and do you! Now everybody wants to be gangster or wants to be the next drake! Never mind the fans todays rappers need the lesson BE ORIGINAL!

  • Wolverine

    @ The Authentic Nickey Black

    Go and visit Sigmund Freud! Your comments show that you are looking for attention and naming the haters before their comments.

    MISTAKES: 1. Kane did not write ” roxanne’s revenge”. Biz & Kane was not in juice crew in ’84. SHAN co-wrote that song. 2. ” Raw ” came out b4 “Symphony”. 3. “Smooth Operator” came out b4 ” I Get Job Done “. 4. NO MARLEY MARL??? (didn’t even say his name!) 5. NO MR MAGIC (r.i.p.) how u gonna say JUICE CREW ALLSTARS & not say magic & marley??? No rap attack (wbls) no mention of “mr magic” song??? I’m from DETROIT & i know all this! Where’s the REAL HIP HOP HISTORIANS??? Good effort but it was WACK!!!

    @DJ King David: Good Comments. I’d like to see someone at TVOne answer that.

    As for me, I’m just wondering why Hov couldn’t take 5 minutes to say a lil something?
