We caught up with hip-hop legend Big Daddy Kane at Rock The Bells, and he made it very clear: the Long Live The Kane rapper is still in the game. Kane, who's been active in the rap world since his debut in 1988, is appreciative that today's big names in rap are giving credit where credit is due: "My sole purpose for getting into this was to be recognized as a great lyricist... So when you have the great MCs and lyricists of today showing love, it's a beautiful thing... I really feel blessed."

See what else Big Daddy Kane had to say about the success to longevity in the music business in our interview above.
