Big Daddy Kane feat. Sauce Money, Shyheim, Jay-Z & Ol’ Dirty Bastard rap on Show & Prove from Big Daddy Kane’s 1994 album “Daddy’s Home”. This video illustrates an interesting time in hip hop. You had the old school with BDK, the new school with ODB and the even newer school with Jay-Z. BDK’s career was flatlining. while ODB from Wu-Tang was on fire with his career.
But what’s most interesting is that young Jay-Z was about to step into the spotlight a few years later with his album Reasonable Doubt. He was basically get primed at this point in his career to step up and *cough* show and prove. I couldn’t help that one.
Scoob and Sauce Money were on the outer perimeter, barely known, never would be largely known, while Shyheim was a Staten Island hanger-on. Trying to get recognition in light of his older brethren the Wu-Tang Clan, but never quite being accepted, probably due to his age and his Wu-slang, that you could hear on any official Wu album.
