Happy Birthday, Big Daddy Kane!



One of the greatest to ever bless the mic, turns 50 today.

Grammy Award-winning Big Daddy Kane started his career in 1986 as a member of the rap collective the Juice Crew before releasing his acclaimed debut album in the early summer of 1988 called “Long Live the Kane,” which featured the hit “Ain’t No Half Steppin'”.

Rolling Stone magazine ranked the track #25 on its list of The 50 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs of All Time, calling Kane “a master wordsmith of rap’s late-golden age and a huge influence on a generation of MCs.
