    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.

  • IAMORANGE4EVER

    So Smooth.

    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!

    Ha! I was 4 in ’88.
    But I remember being like 9 in ’93 watching Posse thinking “Father Time is smooth as hell”. lol

  • http://slamonline.com Ben Osborne

    Thanks Allen. At least I only have six years on you.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    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?

  • ch

    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!!

  • O

    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…

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Nah, in NOLA it was straight bounce when I was a youngin’. With a little Cash Money thrown in for good measure.

  • http://slamonline.com Ben Osborne

    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.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    I was a year old when this came out. Haven’t taken half a step since

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    Soop….you need to get your steps right, or your post game will look like Bron’s.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Lol as long as I am not inventing my own crustacean named moves I’m good.

  • J Mac

    Dope! My first show was a Gravediggaz, they need to get some props too..

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Dope!
    Best BDK song is “Warm it Up Kane,” imo. Two classic albums under his belt. Juice Crew is too cool.

    Professor Prince Puh-HAUL!!!

  • Heals

    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…

  • HAMMER
