Big Daddy Kane is already a hip hop legend, but today he will be immortalized when he is inducted into the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s Celebrity Path. Along with this honor, Kane will receive the key to Brooklyn as well. The ceremony will take place during the third annual Central Brooklyn Arts & Culture Walk.
Big Daddy Kane has been one of the most influential hip hop artist of all time. He is a Grammy winner, has worked with many top names including Quincy Jones and Jay-Z (he's Hova's former mentor), and he’s appeared in several television shows and movies, including Posse, Meteor Man and Law and Order: SVU.
Kane's name will be engraved on the path along the stretch of Eastern Parkway, from Flatbush to Washington avenues. He joins the likes of Fabolous and Jean-Michel Basquiat has fellow honorees.
Also, Kane is celebrating the 30th anniversary of his debut album.
