Big Daddy Kane's 1988 debut still stands as a raw classic from one of hip-hop's most fruitful years. The production is end-to-end brilliant, with Juice Crew guru Marley Marl soundtracking Kane through nine furious cuts (and one absolute stinker, the slow jam "The Day You're Mine"). Marl's production has rarely sounded finer, a gritty chorus of drums and funk-soul samples that have since been immortalised. "Raw", "Just Rhymin' with Biz" and "Ain't No Half-Steppin'" are the certified anthems, but they're not the only highlights. Check the furious "Long Live the Kane" and "Set It Off" for Kane's up-tempo odes to himself. "I'll Take You There" and "Word to the Mother(Land)" were the obligatory (yet heartfelt) Nation nods, mandatory during this brief late-80s period of Afrocentricity. Though his image would soon switch to that of a smoothed-out new-jack playa, the memory of Kane as one of hip-hop's supreme lyrical rulers lives long on this masterpiece. --Hua Hsu

Big Daddy Kane is widely regarded as one of the foremost rap stars of the 'old skool'. The Long Live The Kane Album was largely responsible for this tag. With a first track called RAW, you know you are in for a treat as the familiar James Brown samples come at ya. Then there is the ubiquitous Set It Off - which has gone through more sub-sampling than most other rap songs of that era.
In short, this album demonstrates what was good about the old skool rap, slick lyrics, fast paced, keen beats, fantastic 808-drum beats, and nifty scratching and sampling.
If you are after a good old nostalgic trip down memory lane to the old skool, this come highly recommended.

1988 was a pivotal year for me. I turned 20 that year, and it was also the year that I feel in love with Hip Hop, after hearing PE's 'Rebel without a Pause'. It was also the year that that this, BDK debut LP, was released onto a eager public. We had already been primed as to the lyrical prowess of this Brooklynite, due to the single release of 'Raw'. This is a classic release from the golden age, with only one bad track 'The Day You're Mine', which set the tone for the battle that Kane had with himself, in terms of being a battle type MC, or a Love God.
Despite being 20 years old, this hasn't aged a bit. Personnel favorites are, well to be honest, like my children, I find it hard to pick out one.
One CD that to my mind should be in any Hip Hop lovers' collection.

admittidly i hadn't heard any big daddy kane songs until i saw the hip hop honours 2005 awards. big daddy kane got an award and performed so i thought he must be something special.i am only 14 and massively into hip hop/rap so i thought i should listen to artists that inspired the people i listen to now and when i got this album it was like nothing ever heard before.sure the music isn't amazing but the lyrics draw you away from any the faults because they are just amazing.kanes flow is sik.

In '87 Kane released the Raw 12" on Prism records in the U.S.A. and was a classic instantly. I remember buying the 12" at the time and when the LP came out I bought it the same day, If your getting into Hip-Hop/Rap then you need to buy the classics and some of the much early Hip-Hop tracks from 1979 to 1985 and then move-on to the golden years. Alot of the tracks/LP's from the years around Kane's time are classics and not just words but really classics. I know that if you lived it and where there then it means more but, Trust me this along with others is well worth having.
Kane was a great rapper and it was all written by him (He wrote most of Biz Markie's album from the same era - also a great LP (Goin' off)) and Marley Marl at the controls you cannot go wrong. It is all good and some stand-out tracks are:
Long live the kane
Set it off
On the bugged tip
Ain'y no half-steppin'
word to the mother (land)
Raw is also good but the original 12" was alot better. (LP version is a remix) Also if you can track it down, the 12" version of 'I'll take you there' is great because it has the 'wrath of kane' on the B-side(this maybe on a best of CD..? don't know)
His next LP was good as well but not a classic like this one.Goin' Off [Deluxe] [Explicit]

This classic debut showcase all his talents. When he was young and when nothing was or could hold him back. This album is one of the blueprints of hip-hop. Melle Mel said "hip-hop is to pick up the mic and CRUSH everything in front of you". Kane killed the mic and the rumored beef with the other greatest MC of the era, Rakim, had us on the edge of our seats. Until this day, his rhymes have maintained their intensity and even in 2006, are still considered to be some of the most lethal battle lyrics ever spit. I can't say no more what's already been said numerously.

Every track on 'Long Live The Kane' is a truly classic. The tracks that steps up to me are "Set It Off" "Just Rhymin' With Biz" "Ain't No Half-Steppin" and "Raw."

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this hip-hop essential to hip-hop fans from every division.
