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. Kane was the first rapper to ever hold not one but two sold-out shows at the world famous Apollo Theater for women only. These live 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.
Rob Base hails from Harlem New York. He first began performing with various groups such as Sure Shot Seven, Cosmic 3 MC’s, Freedom Force, and Disco Enforcers. He and partner DJ EZ Rock, (whom he has known since the 4th grade) would eventually separate from the groups to form Rob Base and DJ EZ Rock. In 1988, Profile Records released Rob Base & DJ EZ Rock’s Debut album It Takes Two. The title track became a massive single. The single and the album were certified platinum by the RIAA on June 12, 1989 Rob Base is best known for his hit with DJ E-Z Rock “It Takes Two,” which was a top 40 hit and is certified platinum.
