Unlike his debut album, which was solely produced by Marley Marl, Kane himself produced the majority of the album. Production was also provided by Prince Paul, Easy Mo Bee, Teddy Riley, Mister Cee, as well as Marley Marl. 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.
To date, it is his most successful effort commercially, certified gold by RIAA.
In 1998, the album was selected as one of The Source’s 100 Best Rap Albums.
In 2008, the single “I Get The Job Done” was ranked number 57 on VH1’s 100 Greatest Songs of Hip Hop.
