Big Daddy Kane sat down with VladTV recently to chop it about who he thought were the top three lyricist of all time without naming himself. In true Kane fashion, he had to include himself on that list because as he stated, “I’m so f***ing incredible. I gotta be on there.” Other than himself, he names legends Rakim, and KRS-One. According to Kane, they changed the “lyrical game” and reshaped the way rappers rhymed.
“I haven’t seen anyone change the lyrical game, like how it changed in the 80’s,” says Kane on the current state of lyrical content.
He mentioned Nas as one his favorites and Big Pun as an incredible lyricist. Check out the full interview below.
