INSPIRATION BEHIND THE ARTWORK:
Antonio Hardy (born September 10, 1968)1 better known by his stage name Big Daddy Kane, is a Grammy Award-winning American rapper who started his career in 1986 as a member of the rap group the Juice Crew. He is widely considered to be one of the most influential and skilled MCs in hip hop.23456789101112 Regarding the name Big Daddy Kane, he said: “The Big Daddy part and the Kane part came from two different things. The Kane part came from my fascination with the martial arts flicks when I was young.” The Big Daddy part came from the name of a character Vincent Price played in the film Beach Party.13

Rolling Stone magazine ranked his song “Ain’t No Half Steppin’” #25 on its list of The 50 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs of All Time, calling him “a master wordsmith of rap’s late-golden age and a huge influence on a generation of MCs.” They added, “Legend has it that even the Eighties’ greatest rapper, Rakim, turned down a challenge to go mic-to-mic with Kane.”14
