Big Daddy Kane Background
Antonio Hardy, better known as Big Daddy Kane, struck up a friendship with Biz Markie back in the early 80s. Their friendship culminated into Kane co-penning some of Markie's most popular songs. The pair eventually joined the fold of Juice Crew. Kane inked a deal in 1987 with Cold Chillin' Records and premiered that same year with "Raw." In 1988, he issued his first album, Long Live the Kane, which yielded the hit "Ain't No Half Steppin'." It's a Big Daddy Thing followed a year later. By the time the 90s rolled in, Big Daddy Kane had built a solid reputation among his peers. He contributed to "Burnin'" in 1991, Patti Labelle's project, offering the rap chorus to the track, "Feels Like Another One." He additionally lent his talents to "Nuff Respect" for the Juice film soundtrack. Also in 1991, he took home the Grammy for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group. Kane dedicated a fair amount of time to touring with Jay-Z. In the mid-90s, Kane collaborated with Tupac Shakur and MC Hammer on "Too Late Playa." At the dawn of the millennium, Big Daddy Kane contributed to "The Piece Maker" by Tony Touch. He also worked with a string of hip-hop talents like Little Brother, the Beat Junkies, A Tribe Called Quest and more. Today, Big Daddy Kane continues to tour and inspire up-and-coming rappers. Ice-T said it all about Kane when he explained, "To me, Big Daddy Kane is still today one of the best rappers. I would put Big Daddy Kane against any rapper in a battle. Jay-Z, Nas, Eminem, any of them. I could take his 'Raw' 'swagger' from 88 and put it up against any record [from today]. Kane is one of the most incredible lyricists... and he will devour you on the mic. I don't want to try to out-rap Big Daddy Kane. Big Daddy Kane can rap circles around cats."
