Long before Biggie sat on the throne as the King of New York or Jay-Z took his place, there was Big Daddy Kane. BDK essentially had it all and was one of the best on-stage performers of his era using braggadocios lyrics and smooth ways with the women as well as keep the party going with his funky dance moves. Feeling that Kane didn’t get his proper due coming up, TV One featured him as a part of their Unsung series.

Long live the Kane and if you’re still not up to BDK, leave it to YN to give the newbies a head’s up. A sample of Kane’s magic below.

”Ain’t No Half Steppin”
