Congratulations are in order for Hip Hop legend Big Daddy Kane.
The Long Island Music Hall of Fame will be adding the “Ain’t No Half Steppin’” rapper to its list of inductees.
Chuck D of Public Enemy has been tapped to induct BDK into the LI Music Hall.
Big Daddy Kane’s career includes being a member of the respected rap collective the Juice Crew as well as releasing critically acclaimed solo albums Long Live The Kane and It’s a Big Daddy Thing.
The Brooklyn native is often cited as one of the greatest emcees of all time, and he won a Grammy award for his contribution to Quincy Jones’ “Back on the Block.”
“I wanted to be different,” Kane told Newsday. “I wanted to address everyone. I wanted to address the hood, but also the people that was getting money. I wanted to address the men and women, the kids and the adults.”
The Long Island Music Hall of Fame Induction Gala is scheduled for Thursday, November 3 at The Space at Westbury.
Tickets for the event can be purchased at Ticketmaster.
