It’s a Big Daddy Thing is the second full-length album by Big Daddy Kane. It was released on September 12, 1989.
To date, it is his most successful effort commercially, certified gold by RIAA.
In character with his first album and many other albums of the day, It’s a Big Daddy Thing branches out into different styles, from battle rhymes to love ballads and more. His later posturing as a self-proclaimed ladies’ man is somewhat foreshadowed by the hit song “Smooth Operator”. Also, one of the songs in the album, “Wrath of Kane,” appears in live performance taken from the Apollo Theater.
