LONG LIVE THE KANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Scoob Lover and Scrap Lover.
Man, I loved this motherfu*ker back then.
I feel you E! Another of the original Juice Crew members… “THE” carbon copy many lyrical cats followed behind. In 1988 “RAW” was the shi* and it still bangs to this day! A true lyricists!
ABSOLUTELY CLASSIC MATERIAL. Crazy that I still know every word of this song.
When Kane did “To Be Your Man” with Blue Magic, I swore up and down he was the smoothest cat ever. Looking back now, it was cheesy as hell….but Blue Magic and the video saved it from being a footnote. “And what about the time that I called you long distance
on my car telephone (and I was alone)
Now that’s what I call reachin out to touch somebody
at a million dollar zone” KANE!
You old bastards.
I was eight-years old in 1988.
Hahhahaha…. and still aging like fine wine Allenp… To be 15 yrs old running wild in Cali in 1988 WUUUUUWEEEE…..
Ha! I was 4 in ’88.
But I remember being like 9 in ’93 watching Posse thinking “Father Time is smooth as hell”. lol
Thanks Allen. At least I only have six years on you.
I got 4 years on you, boss man. I was a senior in ’88. Saw Kane at a radio concert in Philly that year. Ain’t no half steppin’ here.
I was young enough where I could probably only half step, maybe two steps before falling.
I’m liking all these old-school tracks but how bout showing love to the south for once?
I was born in 91 and I think that the 80′s were the best times in hip hop!
I wasn’t even born when this was made… damn!!
I was 8 in 1988 too and was still on my stoop with my 3rd grade crew like, “I’m different, so don’t compare to another. Cause they can’t hang – tsk! – word to the mother!” I remember my older brothers and they homies talking about who Rakim vs. Big Daddy Kane. Great ol’ days…
Nah, in NOLA it was straight bounce when I was a youngin’. With a little Cash Money thrown in for good measure.
Good stuff, Eboy. I never saw Kane live, though age isn’t a great excuse for that. My first hip-hop show was Tribe, Third Bass and the Afros in ’89.
I was a year old when this came out. Haven’t taken half a step since
Soop….you need to get your steps right, or your post game will look like Bron’s.
Lol as long as I am not inventing my own crustacean named moves I’m good.
Dope! My first show was a Gravediggaz, they need to get some props too..
Best BDK song is “Warm it Up Kane,” imo. Two classic albums under his belt. Juice Crew is too cool.
Professor Prince Puh-HAUL!!!
I imagine they would’ve been good to see in person J. Ahhhh if only I was born a few years sooner, coulda listened to this during class back in the day…
Co-sign J Mak. Bring on them Gravediggaz. “Dangerous Minds”.
^ J Mac. My bad.
lolololol@ nic fleming hahaha
Have we gotten some PE yet? Chuck D, Terminator X, Flava Flav, and the Bomb Squad. C’mon MAN!
