Big Daddy Kane spoke in glowing terms about his protege Jay-Z. Jay, before he became a rap mogul, was a part of Kane’s group performing at his shows.
This is what he said when Complex caught up with him - “I’m happy for him. I’ve always thought that dude was a good rapper and always wanted to see him achieve the best and he has,” “[Nets in Brooklyn?] That’s beautiful. I love when big things happen for Brooklyn. I used to love the Nets back when Jayson Williams was playing for them. I hope they get it together and are able to contend for a championship. Even if they don’t win, I’d love to see them in the playoffs and the Finals.”
