Rap prodigy Shyheim (aka “The Rugged Child”) was among the guest MCs on “Show and Prove,” a posse cut from Big Daddy Kane’s 1994 album Daddy’s Homeย also featuring Ol’ Dirty Bastard and a pre-fame Jay-Z. On his verse, the then 15-year-old Shyheim posits himself as a ladies’ man through references to Shabba and Super Cat’s dancehall hits “Trailer Load A Girls” and “Don Dada,” respectively.
