Big Daddy Kane Preps Album With New Supergroup

Big Daddy Kane (your favorite emcee's favorite emcee) is prepping a new album with a supergroup consisting of Big Daddy Kane, live hip hop group the Lifted Crew and singer Showtyme:

[ "The album is called Back to the Future, and we came together collectively - myself Big Daddy Kane, Showtyme, who sings with Pharoahe Monch, and the Lifted Crew - and we basically merged together...[with] three different units coming together as one to form Las Supper," he said, "What we tried to do is basically bring back the vintage '60s and '70s soul - which you see a lot of people doing [including] Sharon Jones, Amy Winehouse, [and] Raphael Saadiq - but combining it with vintage Hip Hop, like the stuff that I was doing from the beginning of my career [in] the Public Enemy, Rakim KRS-One era…[we're] doing it over nothing but live instruments - live guitar, live trumpet, even on down to the glockenspiel."] source:
