It's a Big Daddy Thing is the second album by American rapper Big Daddy Kane, released in 1989 on Cold Chillin' Records. In character with his debut album and many other hip hop albums of the time, 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". The song "Wrath of Kane" is taken from a live performance at the Apollo Theater.

To date, it is his most successful effort commercially, and was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. In 1998, it was selected by The Source as one of the 100 Best Albums.
