Advertising Information for vagmusic
Big Daddy Kane is a recognized rapper from Brooklyn, New York. His real name is Antonio Hardy and he was born on September 10, 1968. This rapper grew up in Bed-Stuy, a section of Brooklyn. He has worked with artists such as Teddy Riley, Biz Markie, Marley Marl, Barry White and Rudy Ray Moore. Antonio Hardy (Big Daddy Kane) was part of the Juice Crew (a hip-hop group that was founded by producer Marley Marl in the 1980’s). Other members of the Juice Crew were Roxanne Shante and Biz Markie, to whom Big Daddy Kane wrote songs. It is not a secret that Jay-Z is one of the most successful rappers in the business; well, he began his career as a protégée of Big Daddy Kane.

Kane is certainly among the greatest representatives of the “golden age” of hip hop. This era began in 1986 and ended in 1989. He was supposed to sign a record deal with Makaveli Records, the company that Tupac was going to establish before his death on September 13, 1996. In fact, Tupac and Big Daddy Kane recorded a song called "Wherever U Are".

In his lyrics, Big Daddy Kane is portrayed as a pimp. The song called "Pimpin’ Ain’t Easy" represents his personality and is one of his most recognized singles. Today, he is involved in many upcoming projects, mostly as an actor and is constantly on tour, but he does not plan to release another solo album.
