"Like a lots of things in life, it's only with the passing of time that you learn to really appreciate things. Bid Daddy Kane had the misfortune to be in his prime in the Golden age of Hip Hop, with the likes of Rakim, LL Cool J, KRS-One, Kool G Rap, as his peers. Oh for a BDK now. This was his last release for Cold Chillin', and after this time, he was M.I.A. But what a CD to sign off with. This CD, too my mind, also highlights his weakness, wanting to a rapping about love, when most of his fans wanted him to be hardcore (listen to the `Prelude', where the great man addresses the situation himself) This CD is very hit & miss, but it showcases a man at the peak of his abilities. The lead single was this CD was' How U get a record deal'; with a very catchy video (check out you tube!) One of the highlights of this CD is' The Beef is on' which I can only describe as RUFF, true vintage Kane, in gangster mode. .'Stop Shammin' deals with the fakeness in the hip hop music industry (still relevant today!), whilst his dancers, Scoob & Scrap get on the mic on the afore mentioned `Here comes Kane, Scoob & Scrap'. Any fan of BDK should have this in their collection, and witness a true hip-hop GREAT.

Good Kane CD

"You ask most real hiphop fans to name the best that did it on the mic and alot of the time you'll hear Kane being mentioned amongst the list. His rapid fire delivery added to his witty lyricism and his overall charisma over the ill beats captivated heads from the second he gripped the mic. After releaseing classics such as "Long Live The Kane" and "Its A Big Daddy Thing" and 2 alright follow ups he resurfaced with this awesome album. From the opening title track to the smooth outro it bumps along nicely with a great mixture of his masterful wordplay, ill metaphors ("my rhymes are like spandex, they make any a** seem good")and smooth tracks like "Very Special" and "Give It To Me". The highlights for me were when Kane ripped tracks apart with fierce flows on tracks like "Looks Like A Job For...", "How U Get A Record Deal?", "Chocolate City", "Rest In Peace", "Ni**az Never Learn" and "Nuff Respect(remix)". 2 other standouts were the brilliant story orientated "The Beef Is On" and the message filled "Stop Shammin'". Another plus for this album was the versatile, hard, bass heavy production from Easy Moe Dee, Trackmasterz (before the went mainstream) and Kane himself. The only 2 weak tracks in my opinion were "Brother Man,Brother Man" and "Very Special", other than that its excellent, even if its sounds alittle bit dated at times."
