BDK (Unofficial Teaser)
Directed by Anthony Marshall
Presented by Scion
When it comes to hip hop, there are only a handful of people that truly deserve to be called legends. In BDK, we learn the story of one of hip hop’s most notable legends, Big Daddy Kane. From music to fashion, Kane has always been a quintessential figure of the Golden Era of hip hop. In this documentary, directed by Anthony Marshall (co-founder of Lyricist Lounge), Kane talks about his years growing up as a kid in New York, his life in the rap game, his influence on fashion and his lyrical superiority.
Passion, dedication, resourcefulness, leadership – these are qualities that make for a successful entrepreneur. At the young age of 16, Anthony Marshall exemplified those qualities by co-creating Lyricist Lounge, which became the blueprint for discovering emerging hip hop emcees. With this experience in music and television, he most recently helped to launch Current TV, the groundbreaking cable and satellite TV network co-founded by former Vice President Al Gore. In front of the camera, Mr. Marshall hosted on-air segments and aggregated user-generated content for Current’s VC2 (Viewer Created Content) initiative.
