In a recent interview with BET.com Rakim was asked about the battle that never was with fellow hip-hop legend Big Daddy Kane.

“That would have been a hell of a battle, man,” he said. “We was talking bout that today as well. I think the difference between me and Kane, Kane was more of a punchline rapper…and some of my rhymes you had to wait ’til you play it 10 times, rewind it and figure out what I was doing. I don’t know, man. Honestly, you would have had different opinions of who you thought won.”

I personally think that in a face-to-face battle Kane would come out on top because, as Rakim said, he is a witty MC that would get the crowd on his side. However, if there were recorded songs a-la “Ether” vs “The Takeover” I’d give the edge to Rakim. Either way Ra is confident that he would prevail.

“But as far as I’m concerned, I would have put a new hole in my dude’s…nah mean?” he added jokingly. “I love you, my dude.”

Who do you think would win in a battle between Rakim and Big Daddy Kane? Would the outcome be different in ’88 than 2009? Speak on it!
