Hip-hop legend Big Daddy Kane has one of the most storied careers of the early days of hip-hop. However this particular conspiracy is one that reached a fever pitch in the early '90s.
The AIDS epidemic was in full force, and many people in the African American community were scared and pointing fingers out of fear. One of the unfortunate people at the end of this AIDS witch hunt was Big Daddy Kane, who allegedly addressed it in front of a studio audience on Oprah after the public outcry got too loud. There is of course no actual video evidence of this, and Kane is alive and well.
