“Two of hip-hop’s greatest ever M.C.’s perform live on stage”


Kane has undisputedly defined the term “lyricist” in the world of hip-hop. Along with the vocal ingenuity he brought to the genre, he also introduced innovative live performances as well. Kane was not only an M.C but a full entertainer. He revolutionized hip-hop fashion and the way hip-hop shows were performed.

During a career which spans nearly 25 years he’s received several gold albums and endless music accolades including a Grammy award. His catalogue of music consists includes the LP "Long Live The Kane" that features the hit songs "Isn’t No Half Steppin'" and "Raw." The LP "It's A Big Daddy Thing" featured "Smooth Operator" "Warm It Up" and the Teddy Riley produced hit "I Get The Job Done." The LP “Taste Of Chocolate" features "Hard Being The Kane" and "All Of Me" as well as a duet with the legendary Barry White. And most recently 1998s veterenz day.

As a powerful figure in the rap game, Kane possessed a prodigious rhyming technique honed from numerous B-boy battles. Brought up in the tough Bedford-Stuyvesant neighbourhood of Brooklyn. By high school, he had begun writing poetry and looking up to the pioneering rap of Melle Mel, Grandmaster Caz, and Kool Moe Dee. As his wordplay improved, Kane was asked to write material for the Juice Crew and Kurtis Blow. By 1988 his songs had been covered by Biz Markie “Vapors” and the notorious “Pickin’ Boogers” and Roxanne Shanté “Have a Nice Day” and “Go On Girl”. After touring as Shanté’s DJ, Kane decided to try rapping.

For his first album, produced by Marley Marl, the songs Kane wrote for himself proved as wide-ranging as those he’d written for others. The macho posturing on “Raw” became his calling card, with the rest of the album ranging from the romantic “The Day You’re Mine” to the cool and funky “Ain’t No Half-Steppin’”. Kane’s subsequent albums relied on a similar recipe. In 1984, he met Biz Markie, and the two struck up a friendship. Kane would go on to co-write some of the Biz's best-known raps, and both eventually became important members of the Queens-based Juice Crew, a collective headed by renowned producer Marley Marl. Big Daddy Kane is currently working on a new album with his band Connie Price and the Keystone called "The Last Supper".  


The diabolical Biz Markie brings more than 26 years of solid hip-hop acumen and an overwhelming fan-base that stretches from New York City to Japan to Europe. At the age of 14, Marcel Hall dazzled his neighbourhood under the alias of Biz Markie. His music scene debut began in 1985 as a beat box for Roxanne Shante of the Juice Crew., Biz is the definition of longevity and has managed to remain one of the most notable artists and DJs in the industry. Born to embrace hip-hop, Biz is originally from Harlem and began his journey to musical anarchy, beat boxing his way into hip-hop heads' hearts and delivering humorous, witty rhymes that made him loveable and admired by music fans all over.

 Biz Markie shows no signs of stopping. He currently Djs and performs in club and concert venues all over the world. Biz's has numerous television credits include MTV2's Hip Hop Squares, Celebrity House Hunters, "Celebrity Fit Club" and recently Nick Jr's "Yo Gabba Gabba" doing the beat box of the day. Simply put, Biz Markie is one of the most sought after Entertainers/DJs in the business.
