In the late 1980s, Big Daddy Kane rose to the top of the rap game. He helped open the door for Jay-Z. Because of Jay’s style, some consider Kane to be an archetype, of sorts, for what Hov became.
Big Daddy Kane was the original “flossy” rapper, who liked to stunt. On top of that, he also was super lyrical. But, this is something a lot of people overlooked, until they were unable to.
Tonight, Big Daddy Kane faced KRS-One, on Verzuz. Some said the matchup wasn’t the best, but it was a classic performance. Kane got out there and did his thing, with Twitter giving him huge props for his performance.
