BIG DADDY KANE Documentary In The Works


From ALLHIPHOP:

For the first time in his illustrious career, the legacy Big Daddy Kane will be the subject of a feature-length documentary. Simply titled BDK, the biopic features Kane narrating on his humble beginnings growing up Brooklyn, and his first exposure to the culture that would define him.

“The first time I brought a microphone was because of Divine Sounds, Disco Ritchie,” Kane recalled. “He had his equipment out rhyming and I wanted to get on. So right after I was like ‘I’m an emcee, I wanna rhyme too.’” As with many pioneer artists, Kane learned early to stand on his own merits to gain respect.

Other topics outlined in the documentary will be Kane’s influence on Hip-Hop fashion and the visual presentation of the emcee, along with his lyrical impact through his solo catalogue and Juice Crew contributions.

The film will be directed by Anthony Marshall, co-founder of the Lyricist Lounge. Read more at the link above.

I've been a long time fan of BDK and I'm glad he's getting the respect that is due to him. He is a true lyricist and I will be keeping both eyes out for this documentary. And no I didn't buy it but I peeped his spread in Playgirl back in the day "and that's all I have to say about that..."

LOL! Drea is the best! I'm a ''young'un" who recently got hooked up on BDK. And when the 'old timers' (sorry Drea lol) say that rap music now is crap and music back then had mystery, soul and meaning to it, they're right. Music now is CRAP! I'm either listening to Jazz, (Irene Reid) Latin music (Marc Anthony, Celia Cruz), or old school rap now. I haven't listened to the radio in months. I don't think I'm missing anything, either.
