When Rap Lyrics Get Censored, Even on the Explicit Version

Big Daddy Kane on "Just Rhymin' With Biz" (1988)

Lyrics Censored: "Aw, [fuck] it. The Kane is invincible."

It's likely that at least one of sampled artists—Melvin Bliss, James Brown, and the Jimmy Castor Bunch—required censorship before clearance. (And couldn't understand Biz Markie saying "motherfuckin'" at the beginning.)
