Big Daddy Kane is a Brooklyn, New York M.C. who undisputedly defined the term “lyricist” in the world of hip-hop. Along with the lyrical ingenuity he brought to the genre, he also introduced innovative live performances as well. Kane was the first rapper to ever hold not one but two sold out shows at the world famous Apollo Theater for women only. These lives performances, which consisted of theatrics, choreography and tailored costumes proved that Big Daddy Kane was not only an M.C., he was a full entertainer. Kane revolutionized hip-hop fashion and the way hip-hop shows were performed.

The voice behind the seminal hip hop hit ‘Roxanne’s Revenge’, Roxanne Shante has long been considered a pioneering player in the hip hop game. Not content to limit herself to the music business, she retired at the age of 25 and went on to receive a Ph. D. in psychology. 

In 2017 a film about her early life and career – ‘Roxanne, Roxanne’ – was released to critical acclaim.

Best known for his albums ‘Chubb Rock’ and ‘And the Winner Is…’, as well as singles such as ‘Treat ‘em Right’, ‘Just the Two of Us’ and ‘The Chubbster’, Chubb Rock was a pre-med student at Brown University before dropping out of school to pursue his music career. 

 

Together for more than 25 years, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy — famously named after an autograph by blues legend Albert Collins — has appeared in concert venues across the world, sold millions of records, and had their music appear in hundreds of movies and television shows.
