Product Description

Product Description


Fer de lance du fameux Juice Crew, les protégés du producteur Marley Marl, Big Daddy Kane est une des premières stars du rap à émerger du creuset new-yorkais, un des premiers à collectionner les disques d'or, en cette fin des années 80 où le rap vit ses balbutiements. Kane écrit d'ailleurs pour la plupart de ses collègues du Juice Crew : le clown Biz Markie ou l'élément féminin Roxane Shanté, mais son élégance de maquereau comme son flow élégamment "smooth" lui ouvrent grand les portes de la popularité. Après un premier disque d'or en 1988, ce It's A Big Daddy Thing lui vaut l'année suivante une autre récompense dorée, autorisée par les tubes "Smooth Operator" et "I Get The Job Done". Sept albums en dix ans font un joli score, quand on sait qu'en hip-hop les carrières sont fugaces, et si, aujourd'hu, Big Daddy Kane court après une gloire perdue, ses premières oeuvres restent significatives de cet âge d'or où le rap était candide, de la poésie de rue, gorgée de vraie soul, sans arrière-pensées de marketing. -- Jean-Eric Perrin

4.0 out of 5 stars Another TIGHT follow up album April 5 2004
Format:Audio CD
Big Daddy Kane was still RAW when this album dropped in 1989. It really was a "big daddy" thang, as he still could bring the lyrics and was rapidly becoming a sex symbol, up there with LL Cool J. This album is STILL tight, and was Kane still in his true form. Here's the review:
Album Highlights: It's A Big Daddy Thang, Another Victory, Mortal Combat, Smooth Operator, I Get The Job Done, Wrath of Kane, Lean On Me(Remix), Warm It Up, Kane, and Calling Mr. Welfare.
Production: Thumbs in the middle, leaning towards up.
Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs up.
Originality: Thumbs up.
The Last Word: They should've included the ORIGINAL version of Lean On Me, but the remix is good, but not better. Overall, while NOT the groundbreaking effort like Long Live The Kane, this album is still Kane is his true form. I recommend this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Awesome Big Daddy Kane May 1 2002
Format:Audio CD
This album is a classic. What a treat! Seventeen blazing tracks from the Big Daddy Kane back in 1989. Each track is a hit in its own right. Could this be the greatest rap album of all time? It just might be. This Brooklynite unloads rhymes like fire all over this album. Feel the energy of the crowd on the live performance of 'Wrath Of Kane'. It just does not get any smoother than 'Smooth Operator'. Anthems like 'Young, Gifted and Black' shows and proves that Kane is class all the way. 'Another Victory' shows Kane's versatility on the microphone. 'Pimpin Ain't Easy' is a jam with a hook you'll be singin' over and over. This album captures the spirit of hip hop in the late 80s. A superb display of lyrical mastery.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kane You Dig It? Jan. 27 2003
Format:Audio CD
Ahh, this one brings back fond memories; it wasn't necessary for every rapper to be Public Enemy back in the day, and BDK wasn't even close.
What he did prove, however, is that Bobby Brown only wished he could have produced albums (and written rhymes) this fly. From "Long Live The Kane" to "It's A Big Daddy Thing", these were like the twin towers of rap excellence, generally underrated, and still pretty cool to listen to, in parts.
He gets the knock for homophobia on "Pimpin' Ain't Easy", but everybody I play this song for now still loves it. Fifteen years later, it still spins just fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true timeless classic! Feb. 20 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Unbelievable flows! Untouchable style. Kane at his best: this album is untouchable. His classic style from his first single in 1986, GET INTO IT, to Long Live the Kane, up to It's A Big Daddy Thing, has never been matched. Hopefully his album now in the works (on Landspeed record label) will be a return to this smooth yet on point style, currently missing from hip hop culture. On an added note, I recently heard the single THE MAN: THE ICON, which lives up to these expectations! (I hope this single, as well as the single produced by Premiere, comes out on the upcoming album.)
