Big Daddy Kane joined the KDAY Morning Show with Cece and Romeo to discuss the importance of staying safer at home with #Covid19 and Performing in this new virtual world.

When asked about all the Verzuz speculations, Kane gives us some of the back story on Verzuz talks and who else would be good for him to celebrate with. Kane tells Cece and Rom that the Rakim battle will most likely not come to fruition saying, “In all honesty I would doubt it [happening]. Swiss Beatz asked me about it back in April, maybe two nights after the Babyface, Teddy Riley battle. He asked me would I be willing to do it and I said make it happen.” Kane continues, “You know, from what I understand, he has relentlessly tried to make it happen.” Although the Rakim and Kane battle won’t be able to make quarantine history, Kane confesses that he would like to see a musical celebration with KRS-One.

During these last few months of protests and civil unrest, Kane tells us how he’s been inspired to produce a new single with Chuck D, “Enough”. Being inspired by a speech from social and Black Lives Matter activist Tamika Mallory, Kane confesses that he had to make a song that reflects everything that we are experiencing in 2020.

Big Daddy Kane goes on to reveal what shows he’s been watching during the quarantine experience, his thoughts on being in Snoop Dogg’s top five list, and urges everyone to stay home during this time, whether you believe COVID-19 is real or not.
