Big Daddy Kane is one of the original greats with a career in the late Eighties and early Nineties that influenced a generation of rappers. His seminal 1988 debut is an essential listen that spawned verbal highlights like this incredible track.

When Jay-Z christened Brooklyn's new Barclays Center arena earlier this year with a series of eight straight shows, he brought out only one guest rapper to share his stage: Bed-Stuy native Big Daddy Kane. And for good reason. Antonio Hardy was the master wordsmith of rap's late-golden age and a huge influence on a generation of MCs. On "Ain't No Half Steppin'," his tone is rich and commanding as he rocks tightly coiled extended metaphors over Marley Marl's laid-back groove (based around the Emotions' fine 1972 cut "Blind Alley"): "Rappers, you better be/Ready to die because you're petty/You're just a butter knife, I'm a machete." Legend has it that even the Eighties' greatest rapper, Rakim, turned down a challenge to go mic-to-mic with Kane.

In 1997, he started working on his second studio album, The Big Picture . [25] COC folded when Bloodshed died in a car accident on March 2, 1997.
