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.
