Big Daddy Kane is one of the most influential MCs in rap history. His decisive, coolly assured “rhymes of strength and power” have drawn the praise of acolytes from East (Kool Moe Dee) to West (Ice-T). Since coming out of Brooklyn in the mid-1980s, the former Antonio Hardy helped Jay Z refine his vision and has collaborated with Public Enemy, Tupac Shakur, Patti LaBelle, Ice Cube and Quincy Jones. “I’m the authentic poet to get lyrical/For you to beat me, it’s gonna take a miracle,” he declared accurately enough on the 1988 single “Ain’t No Half-Steppin’.” As Big Daddy Kane announced a year later on “Smooth Operator,” he is “for real, shooting lyrics like a harpoon.” He hasn’t released a full album since 1998’s Veteranz Day, although he did appear earlier this year in the film Exposed.
