This album turns 30 years old today and is easily one of the greatest golden era hip-hop albums to have been released. Big Daddy Kane’s quick and suave lyrical delivery partnered with legendary Marley Marl’s production propelled his debut album to RIAA certified gold. Numerous lines from this album have been heavily sampled in other popular hip-hop songs and if you haven’t heard a track from this project, don’t be surprised if you hear a line which is sampled in another song. Due to the success of this album, he was the first MC to popularise the four-finger rings, velour suit and dookie chain style. Kane is a pioneer of hip-hop and will be remembered as one of the greatest to ever hold a mic, he has influenced many other great MCs i.e. Nas, Biggie, Jay-Z, Eminem etc. This album was a turned point in hip-hop where lyrical skills started to become much more complex and sophisticated than it had in the past.

No doubt this is a hip-hop classic and all hip-hop heads should listen to this understand how influential Kane was in a time when no one else had this style. Stand out songs: Raw, Ain’t No Half-Steppin’ and Just Rhymin’ With Biz.
Since this is a relatively short album (~46 mins, no excuse not to listen to this classic) it fits on a single LP. The LP plays through quite nicely, mine is a little worn with a few pops and snaps in between songs, but that just adds more character to this album. I don’t have any complaints with the quality of this LP, vocals and bass come together to sound great.

5/5 for the album, 4/5 for the pressing.

Without question, one of the 10 greatest hip hop albums of all time. Period.
