On Sunday, the team at Verzuz debuted a battle that showcased the culture that birthed the careers of Timbaland and Swizz Beatz, the Verzuz Founding Fathers.
Big Daddy Kane and KRS-One took the stage in Brooklyn for the latest live-audience installation of Verzuz. The event featured several special guests, including Roxanne Shanté, Eric B, Mad Lion, Das EFX, and more. Find a playlist featuring songs from tonight’s event below.
KRS-One’s most recent record was 2020’s Between da Protests, while Big Daddy Kane has yet to release an album-length follow-up to 1998’s Veteranz Day. He did, however, share the new song “Enough!” with Chuck D and Loren Oden last year. In September, Fat Joe faced off against Ja Rule for another Verzuz at the Barclays Center.
