Big Daddy Kane and Slick Rick
March 29, 2013
Big Daddy Kane is a Brooklyn, New York M.C. who undisputedly defined the term “lyricist” in the world of hip-hop. Along with the lyrical ingenuity he brought to the genre, he also introduced innovative live performances as well. These lives performances, which consisted of theatrics, choreography and tailored costumes, proved that Big Daddy Kane was not only an M.C., he was a full entertainer. Kane revolutionized hip-hop fashion and the way hip-hop shows were performed. He has several gold albums and endless music accolades including a Grammy award.
Slick Rick is like a hip-hop holy trinity displaying three Ricky’s in one body: lyricist, producer, and actor. Whereas many rappers speak in the same tone of voice, Ricky is an aural dramatist. In short, there’s nothing like the Slick Rick Experience. Always impeccably attired, there are no other rappers who can touch his style. His influence cannot be overstated. More than any other rapper, he’s been sampled, quoted, loved, and emulated by each generation that has followed him. Hip-hop is about life and truth, and Slick Rick is successful because he is truly a great storyteller in the timeless tradition.
