In anticipation of his new release Back to the Future
, Big Daddy Kane brings his new supergroup The Las Supper to the Blue Note one night only, March 11, featuring the Lifted Crew
and singer Showtyme (Pharoahe Monch).
About the new project, BDK says, "What we tried to do is basically bring back the vintage '60s and '70s soul...but combining it with vintage Hip-hop, like the stuff that I was doing from the beginning of my career...[but] doing it over nothing but live instruments - live guitar, live trumpet, even on down to the glockenspiel."
Kane is widely known as one of hip hop's most lyrical, diverse, innovative, and trendsetting MCs. With severAl Gold
albums to his credit, Kane has enjoyed a long career, including the releases Long Live The Kane
("Ain't No Half Steppin'" and "Raw"), It's A Big Daddy Thing
("Smooth Operator," "Warm It Up, Kane," and "I Get The Job Done"), and Taste Of Chocolate
("Hard Being The Kane" and "All Of Me," a duet with the late legendary Barry White
). As a powerful figure in the rap game, he has also collaborated with many artists, including Public Enemy, Ice Cube, Heavy D, Patti LaBelle
, and Quincy Jones
. All of these accomplishments combine with a Grammy Award to make Kane a true hip hop legend.
