Nobody’s Equal

Surfing on YouTube today and I find this. It looks like they’ve made a biography about the one and only Big Daddy Kane and since I haven’t heard much about the Juice Crew movie lately, this has become my new obsession.

It appears to be part of a short film series put together by Scion. They’ve selected 10 different media outlets to shoot a film on a topic of choice and Anthony Marshall (Lyricist Lounge) shot BDK. No word on when this is officially released but there are launch parties in New York and LA next month.

When it comes to hip hop, there are only a handful of people that truly deserve to be called legends. In BDK, we learn the story of one of hip hop’s most notable legends, Big Daddy Kane. From music to fashion, Kane has always been a quintessential figure of the Golden Era of hip hop. In this documentary, directed by Anthony Marshall (co-founder of Lyricist Lounge), Kane talks about his years growing up as a kid in New York, his life in the rap game, his influence on fashion and his lyrical superiority.

Director Bio
Passion, dedication, resourcefulness, leadership – these are qualities that make for a successful entrepreneur. At the young age of 16, Anthony Marshall exemplified those qualities by co-creating Lyricist Lounge, which became the blueprint for discovering emerging hip hop emcees. With this experience in music and television, he most recently helped to launch Current TV, the groundbreaking cable and satellite TV network co-founded by former Vice President Al Gore. In front of the camera, Mr. Marshall hosted on-air segments and aggregated user-generated content for Current’s VC2 (Viewer Created Content) initiative.
