2017 remastered reissue - originally released back in 1988 on Cold Chillin' Records, Big Daddy Kane's debut LP 'Long Live The Kane' dropped during the height of what is now regarded as the golden age of hip hop. Combining simplistic beats, drawing on elements of funk, and Kane's sharp wordplay, the album cemented both Kane & the Juice Crew's place in Hip Hop history; and with 'Ain't No Half Steppin' it featured one of THE seminal singles of the genre.
Without doubt one of the most influential East Coast rappers to ever do it, paving the way for the likes of Nas, Big L, AZ & Notorious B.I.G amongst others. Nas even ranks 'Long Live the Kane' as one of his top 25 albums ever.
Omerta Inc. will be bringing the album to its intended format for the first time since 1988. Remastered specifically for vinyl release, this will be the best the record has ever sounded.
