Yoshi’s Oakland Presents Big Daddy Kane

On September 10th 1968, Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn became the home of one of hip-hop’s most lyrically diverse, innovative, trendsetting Master of Ceremonies. He’s been branded Dark Gable, Black Caesar and King Asiatic Nobody’s Equal, but is undoubtedly known to the world as BIG DADDY KANE.

Big Daddy Kane 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. 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 lives performances, which consisted of theatrics, choreography and tailored costumes proved that Big Daddy Kane was not only an M.C. but he was a full entertainer. Kane revolutionized hip-hop fashion and the way hip-hop shows were performed.
