When Big Daddy Kane and a Tiny Desk collide, the world pays attention. The lyrical legend, the man known as Dark Gable, Big Daddy Kane, whatever moniker you assign him, he is still one of the greatest of all time. If you’ve ever seen Big Daddy Kane outside of an MTV video you know that he is one of the coolest dudes out there. Not just “Smooth Operator cool”, but genuine. He seems like a guy that you could just sit down, have a beer, and bullshit with for hours. Yes, Kane, this is an unofficial invitation for you to come on the Mr. Throwback Thursday podcast for an interview….but that is not our only purpose here.
Big Daddy Kane is one of our classic hip hop legends. I said it. CLASSIC HIP HOP LEGEND. Nowhere did I say “old” anything. The minute Kane picks up the mic, the word “old” is the furthest thing from your mind. To see him perform on stage with the same energy and moves that he had 30 years ago, the word “old” doesn’t come to mind. What does come to mind….is the word classic. Everything about Kane is just that; classic. There is nothing that we can say here, that hasn’t been said. So, why don’t you just sit back, relax, and listen to the man that told you…… it’s hard being the Kane.
“I just rip shop, flip-top, and watch MC’s get dropped As I manifest in hip-hop Rhymes I construct are tough like a Tonka truck And just like lightnin’ they struck Down on all the toy MC’s that annoy That’s how I build and destroy The poetic printer, rough rhyme inventor With a groove so smooth you can’t help but get into So I’m advisin’ competition to flee ‘Cause I can bake an MC like Chef Boyardee Holdin’ my own on the microphone ‘Cause I break bones just like sticks and stones So let it rain let it rain as I put em in pain God damn, it’s hard bein’ the Kane! ”
Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone!! It’s time for episode one of our second 200 episodes. I guess that makes this 200 2, Electric Boogaloo. This week we talk about everything from a killer concert to a Ghetto Santa. What else? Let’s listen.
Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone! We kick off this week’s episode with a Fuck Fill in the Blank. We haven’t done that in awhile, and it feels good to call people out again. Don’t worry, that’s not all we have, though. What else? Let’s listen.
Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone!! Yes, we have reached the murder episode. We kick off the show talking about our new achievement, remind you to join Fake Football, and kick off our prize box (it’s a real box) contest. What else? Let’s listen.
Happy Throwback Thursday, everyone! This week we have A Very Special episode. You know what that means…somebody is getting touched by the bicycle repair man! Or maybe our very special episode goes a little differently. Maybe we flood your ear holes with a whole lot of Bill Reads Lyrics. Wonder which way it’s going to go? Then let’s listen…..
You know that “and the Anonymous Nobody” is coming in about 2 weeks, right? If not, below the video we have posted all the links we could find. Get it, spread the good word about it, and enjoy it!

Welcome to our Phife tribute show! Why the hell did we name it “Works Every Time” if it’s a Phife tribute? Well that’s not ALL that we talk about this week. We also talk about wanting your malt liquor to fight you, and….
