BIG DADDY KANE VERZUZ KRS ONE IS ABOUT RESPECT
Written by Nate Matthews on October 10, 2021
Speaking to HipHopDX, Kane explained why it’s so important.
“This is bigger than me and KRS,” he said. “This is about the Golden Era of Hip Hop, to show that artists like MC Lyte, Doug E. Fresh, Public Enemy, Chubb Rock, Yo-Yo, Rakim and Kwame are still putting in work and ripping stages.”
Hip Hop pioneers and architects have been consistently disrespected by the newer generation of rap artists — sometimes intentionally and sometimes just out of ignorance. But then there’s someone like Tyler, The Creator who understands the culture’s roots and how important his predecessors are.
