Hip Hop Karaoke is proud to announce the addition of Big Daddy Kane as the second judge at the 2010 Hip Hop Karaoke Championship January 29th at New York’s Irving Plaza. The legendary rapper will join Buckshot (of famed NYC group Black Moon) on stage as 12 of HHK’s finest compete for the $1,000 grand prize and title of Hip Hop Karaoke Champion.
Big Daddy Kane has long been considered one of the greatest and most influential rappers of all time, with emcees such as Jay-Z, RZA, and Ice-T extolling his praises and countless fans regarding albums such as Long Live the Kane and It’s a Big Daddy Thing as hip-hop classics. Tracks like “Warm It Up, Kane,” “Ain’t No Half Steppin’,” and “Set It Off” have been embedded in the collective consciousness of hip-hop fans for over two decades and the organizers are honored to have both Kane and Buckshot help judge the event. The organizers will be announcing the third and final judge shortly.
