iTunes Review

Big Daddy Kane’s debut revolutionized the art of MCing. He’s a lyrical virtuoso who admits, “It’s not easy being me” on “Ain’t No Half-Steppin” and eviscerates rivals on “Raw (Remix)” with what may be the world’s first fast rap. Producer Marley Marl and DJ Mister Cee match Kane’s quick-witted punch lines and authoritarian voice with steaming funky drummer beats and turntable scratches. Whether romancing the ladies on “The Day You’re Mine” or paying tribute to his African roots on “I’ll Take You There,” Kane is a commanding and charismatic presence.

Kane possessed a prodigious rhyming technique honed from numerous B-boy battles; he could also be an Afrocentric consciousness-raiser versed in the philosophy of the Nation of Islam's Five Percent school, or a smooth urban soul crooner whose singing was no match for his...
