Daddy's Home is the sixth album by emcee, Big Daddy Kane. It's Big Daddy Kane's only album on MCA Records, released in September 13, 1994. Like his previous album Looks Like a Job For…, Daddy's Home was generally well-received, but lacked in sales. Despite the positive reviews, the album saw a large drop in Kane's commercial popularity, and produced no crossover hit singles, like his 1993's "Very Special". The album features the singles "In the PJ's" and the DJ Premier-produced posse cut "Show & Prove", featuring Ol' Dirty Bastard, Shyheim, Sauce Money and a then-unknown Jay-Z (credited as "J.Z."), who, at the time, was Kane's protégé.

Following the release of Daddy's Home, Kane took a long break from music, until returning four years later with his seventh album Veteranz Day.
