Big Daddy Kane

"Blazay Blah...You know who you are," rhymed Big Daddy Kane on the 1987 classic "The Wrath of Kane," "The red, black and green/The sun moon and star," he continued. The Brooklyn-born rap legend's style, although impacted by his love of soul music vets like James Brown, was also greatly fed by his association with the Nation of the Five Percent.
