Recently TVOne shed some light on Big Daddy Kane on the hit series Unsung.
For those too young to remember Kane as the man who once competed for the throne of top emcee, the program was educational as well as entertaining. With Kane’s rhyme style, his upscale wardrobe and his willingness to introduce rappers like Jay-Z, the hour-long special gave some relevance to the Brooklyn rap veteran.
Unsung usually features R&B and Soul singers that had tragic ends or just simply didn’t get the props they deserved.
In Hip-Hop there are some acts who definitely could use some mainstream love, a documentary or their story told so today’s generation might appreciate what they added to the game.
