Originally released back in 1988 on Cold Chillin’ Records, Big Daddy Kane’s debut LP Long Live The Kane dropped during the height of what is now regarded as the golden age of Hip Hop. Combining simplistic beats, drawing on elements of funk, and Kane’s sharp wordplay, the album cemented both Kane & the Juice Crew’s place in Hip Hop history; and with Ain’t No Half Steppin’ it featured one of the seminal singles of the genre.

The album is now brought to its intended format for the first time since 1988. The first purple and gold pressing is already sold out. There are still available copies of the second pressing onto 180gm split purple and black vinyl. Grab a copy via BigCartel until there are still any left. Big up to Omerta Inc. for the fly release.

Steely Dan co-founder and bassist/guitarist Walter Becker has died aged 67. Becker is said to have missed concerts earlier this year in order to recover from ill health, although no cause of death has been confirmed. The group, oddly enough named after a dildo from William Borrough‘s cult classic leftfield novel The Naked Lunch, have sold over 40 million albums and gained a loyal following not just for their catchy and witty jazz-rock songwriting, but also with subsequent generations who have discovered the band’s ear for a groove and excellent musicianship via sampling.

In Memory of Walter Becker, Who Sampled selected ten iconic samples from Steely Dan‘s enviable back catalogue. Check out the list at
