BDK - The Big Daddy Kane Story (Video Teaser)

Are you kidding me? Big Daddy Kane is easily top 5 MC's in my books (if not #1 but I know that is very debatable), and now there is a documentary about his life coming out? I can't believe I didn't hear about this until now. This is the teaser for BDK - The Big Daddy Kane Story.

Rap Treats #57: Marley Marl - The Juice Crew EP

Usually I wouldn't post a whole release like this, but since it only came out on wax and was limited to 350 copies (which are all sold out) I figured it's cool this time around. Plus, it's dope as fuck and I'm a Cold Chillin' junkie so here you go.

This is a collection of never released before material that Marley Marl had left over from Juice Crew recording sessions from the late 80's. The G. Rap "I Declare War" record is left over from the Road To The Riches sessions. The Super Kids record is a very young Tragedy the Intelligent Hoodlum and was recorded the same week as "Eric B Is President" & "The Bridge". Big Daddy Kane's "For Your Own Concern" has been floating around Blogland as a radio rip, but this version is straight off the masters. The song was intended for Long Live The Kane but according to the press release it "some how never made it". The second Kool G. Rap record is "Enter The Dragon" which came out in 1996 but with a not so good remixed beat that wasn't the original Marley Marl version. This version is the original. Craig G's record "Drop A Bomb On Em" was recorded sometime around In Control Vol. 1 but like the rest of the EP, the song never saw the light of day. I don't even know what to say. This shit here is the definition of a Rap Treat.

Cross Colors - Dance Showcase (1992)

If me and my crew The G.C.K. Posse had seen this back in the day we would've thought these dudes were the illest! So we would have had to battle them. This is dope, I wish The G.C.K. Posse had more footage from this era. Broncos and alpha's and colt 45's... those are some of the old school moves that I know. Respect due to Dance Masterz and all B Boys young and old across the globe!
