He has also released three solo albums and is widely considered one of the pioneers of alternative hip-hop; a master pioneer and lyricist.







Big Daddy Kane: Highly regarded amongst those in hip-hop as one of the greatest of all time, BDK influenced many artists with his gimmicky persona during the late 80's, early 90's.
BDK started his career in the group Juice Crew before earning notoriety as a battle rapper.
His first two albums are largely considered classics, but BDK has managed to stay relevant up to the present day with many a collaboration with other artists.





I just listened to BDK this weekend, I love the guy but i'd have to give my nod to Q-tip. His smooth flow along with those bad ass jazz loops can't be touched by BDK. I love that Tribe sampled a Bill Cosby song who I always thought could have been a great jazz musician.

Strange thing is I always preferred Phife when it came to Tribe. 8 million stories is my jam man.

My vote is Q-tip.

I think BDK is a better MC, but Q-Tip makes FAR superior music, and isn't too shabby on the mic.

Q-Tip: 3
Big Daddy Kane: 0

I'm going to actually have a go at BDK.
I don't get it. His music has never spoken to me and has always come across as a bit gimmicky, although I appreciate his talents, I find it hard to be interested in what he's saying as I just can't connect with him as an artist.
Plus, I think A Tribe Called Quest have produced far better material than BDK's over-hyped records ever did.

Q-Tip 4
BDK 0

I'm not super into him but I will say I saw him live before and he was really good.

I've got love for both, but I've gotta go with Big Daddy Kane. He wasn't as smooth or refined as Q-Tip, but he was a pioneer and went hard with his own style when not many others did. Without him blazing that trail, there would be no Q-Tip.
