Big Daddy Kane

With dizzying wordplay, upbeat, conscious lyrics and a chocolate Hugh Hefner-like mojo, Big Daddy Kane revolutionized hip hop’s style and sound in the 1980's. Best known for his songwriting skills and sizzling stage shows, Kane could rock the party a la "I Get the Job Done", battle rap with cuts like "Warm It Up Kane" or craft politically inspiring joints like "Another Victory.” But mostly, Kane was all about the ladies, on stage and off. The smooth operating native of Brooklyn’s Bed-Stuy would exert a direct influence on Notorious B.I.G. and Jay-Z, both of whom took notes on his easy flow and take no prisoners style. (Indeed, Kane put Jay-Z on stage early on, giving the future Roc Nation mogul one of his early breaks) But as the West Coast sound crowded out stars from hip hop’s ‘Golden Era’, Kane seemed to fade from view. Or did he? In this episode, Kane and a slew of stars - including Biz Markie, Roxanne Shante and Kool Moe Dee – chronicle the surprising life and times of a charismatic rap kingpin, who always did it his way.

Am I My Sister's Keeper?

Overton's younger sister, Olivia, comes for a visit, and Overton is extremely protective of her. When Overton can't make their planned trip to the botanical gardens, Olivia suggests that she could go to a movie with Kyle (with whom she had been flirting). Overton catches them kissing in the hallway and throws a bucket of water on Kyle, ruining his suit. Meanwhile, Regine decides to become a vegetarian, and forces her beliefs on her roommates by throwing out all the meat. Khadijah plots to convert her back to meat-eating by holding a barbecue and giving her nothing to eat but celery. Regine does not give in, but she and her friends agree to respect each other's values. After a pep talk from Synclaire, Olivia finally musters the courage to ask her brother to stop treating her like a kid.

Ain't Heavy, She's My Mother

Khadijah is thrilled when her mother, Rita, comes to visit for Mother's Day; but Regine is distressed that her mother, Laverne, has tagged along. Laverne quickly gets on her daughter's nerves by pestering her to "get married and get some beans in that oven." During an afternoon at a spa, Regine and Laverne get into a nasty argument after Regine learns that her mother sought Kyle's advice on why she can't land a man. Khadijah and Rita also square off when Khadijah suggests that Laverne should let Regine live her own life. Their dispute is quickly resolved. Max advises Regine to apologize immediately to win the argument, but Laverne beats her to the punch. They finally come to an understanding after coming together to skip around the kitchen and mock the perpetually happy Rita and Khadijah. Meanwhile, Overton goes a little overboard with purchases from the Spending Channel as he seeks the perfect Mother's Day gift.

Hot Fun in the Wintertime

Synclaire wins a trip for two to the Bahamas from a radio trivia contest, but cannot decide who should accompany her. Khadijah and Overton irritate her so much with their petty bickering and attempts to manipulate her that it nearly drives her crazy. Regine advises her to stand up for herself and not let the duo's behavior affect her. Synclaire becomes so fed up that she tells Overton and Khadijah that she is taking Regine on the trip. At her beach-themed party (selected because the heat was out of control), Regine bows out and urges Khadijah and Overton to stop pressuring Synclaire. Regine claims her act is one of genuine kindness, but a man had actually asked her to go to Aspen the same week as Synclaire's trip. Synclaire selects Overton, and Khadijah is proud that her cousin is growing up (because she dumped her for a man). Kyle and Max continually play practical jokes on one another to screw up each other's love lives. Max believes Kyle has gone too far when he invites Goldie to the party. Kyle suggests that their hostility might be a sign that there is something else between them; but when Max seems to consider this, he shouts, "Gotcha!"

Whose Date Is It Anyway?

After learning that Synclaire hasn't had a date for six months, Regine and Max devote their energies to remedying this situation. Synclaire accepts a date from a handsome veterinarian named Michael, much to Overton's chagrin. Max and Regine give her a make-over and offer tips. Regine explains the "date laugh," in which the woman puts one hand on her date and the other on her cleavage when the man says anything amusing. They decide to follow Synclaire to the restaurant to make sure things go smoothly. Although Khadijah feels they should mind their own business, she also tags along. Synclaire is furious at their interference, and asks them to leave. She and Michael have a nice time, but he is called away on an emergency, thanks to a phone call set up by Overton. Overton steps in and takes his place at the table, and later takes Synclaire bowling. Synclaire sends Overton into the stratosphere with a kiss on the cheek, and he excitedly tells Kyle that he is six months ahead of schedule in his pursuit of her.

In the Black Is Beautiful

The printer refuses to produce the latest issue of Flavor unless Khadijah can make a $2000 payment. Max offers her the money, but she flatly refuses. Regine tries to raise money by throwing a lingerie party (featuring male model Overton), but Khadijah tells everyone to mind their own business. After Synclaire tells her that the printer has threatened to see to it that Flavor is never published again, Khadijah accepts Max's check. She becomes so obsessed with paying off her debt that she begins selling appliances and turns into a tyrant at the office. When Max assures her that she doesn't care about getting the money back, Khadijah takes offense. She decides to get the money by selling ad space to a sleazy malt liquor company. Khadijah relents after Synclaire accuses her of being a sell-out. She accepts Max's loan in exchange for a two percent share in Flavor. Meanwhile, the guys quarrel when Kyle fails to reimburse Overton for their bowling night.

Double Indignity

Max takes a job as a telemarketer, unaware that her sleazy boss is a scam artist who sells subliminal tapes that do not contain subliminal messages. She is arrested while talking on the phone with Khadijah. Meanwhile, Overton sets up surveillance and begins recording all the girls' phone calls in the hopes of catching a prank caller. When the public defender assigned to represent Max proves to be woefully incompetent, she decides to represent herself. She points out that the boss was the only person to run, and cites this as evidence that the employees didn't realize they were committing a crime. She adds that she was making a personal call at the time that the police raided the building, and proves this through Overton's tape. The judge dismisses the case, and all the other employees ask Max to represent them. The judge recommends Max to the public defender's office, which hires her immediately.

Following Is a Sponsored Program

A discouraged Synclaire is unsure about auditioning for an infomercial for a dashboard grill, but Max encourages her to follow her acting aspirations. Regine volunteers Max to drive Synclaire to the audition in order to keep her from hanging around the apartment on her day off. Max confronts the director when he dismisses Synclaire without allowing her to say her lines. He is so impressed by Max's spunk that he gives her the part. Synclaire accuses Max of robbing her of her dream, and begins to lose faith in their friendship. When Synclaire tries to walk off the set during the taping, Max calls her up to the stage as a skeptical customer. They pull off the performance beautifully, but are fired because the director feels there is no place for spontaneity in an infomercial. Synclaire thanks Max for restoring her belief in her acting ability. Overton is wracked with guilt when he continually dreams about the R&B group TLC after falling asleep during its videos.

Fatal Distraction

Khadijah hires a handsome and charming man named Xavier St. John as her new writer, without bothering to read his articles or check his references.

Khadijah leans in to kiss him, but he pulls away and says that he is not interested. When Xavier turns in his first article, Khadijah is stunned to discover that he does not possess any writing ability. He claims that she is punishing him for rejecting her advances, and threatens to sue her for sexual harassment. Khadijah decides that the quality of her magazine should not suffer because of her error in judgment. She fires Xavier and dares him to sue her, noting that any judge who read his work would sentence him to remedial English class. Xavier announces that a suit wouldn't be worth the trouble. Overton discovers a box of 19th century love letters under the floor in Regine's room. Regine learns that she could receive 400 dollars for the letters, but Overton and Synclaire obey the man's wishes by burning the evidence of his forbidden love.
