What really makes me scratch my head about the late 80s and early 90s is why hip-hop artists didn't market themselves better. Granted, back then, their music could usually stand on its own merit, but still, hearing more about how the music was made would help us identify with them even more than we already did. That's what's so great about today, when technology is everywhere, capturing any and every thing about our favorite (and not-so favorite) artists. Over the weekend, journalist/photographer/DJ extraordinaire D-Nice caught up with hip hop legend Big Daddy Kane before his show in Brooklyn's Prospect Park to umm, rap a taste, as part of his True Hip-Hop Stories series. In the clip below, Kane--a James Brown enthusiast, according to those in attendance--breaks down how one of his greatest hits, "Ain't No Half Steppin'," came to be. We also get to see Big Daddy in action (technology! Score!) as he moves the crowd, just like a true MC he is. Respect.
