KRS-One Vs. Big Daddy Kane Next Up On Verzuz
On Friday (October 1), Verzuz co-creators Swizz Beatz and Timbaland announced the showdown via Instagram account— it's set October 17 at Barclays Center in partnership with USA’s upcoming horror series, Chucky.
“WANNA PLAY? We got a new VERZUZ on the way Sunday, October 17th, brought to you by the killer new series, #Chucky,” the announcement read. “Who do y’all think it is!? Drop your guesses in the comments below and we’ll pick an entry at random to get a pair of tix!”
It didn’t take long before teasing the new battle via silhouette a legion of fans and Snoop Dogg identified both Boogie Down Productions-era KRS-One and Big Daddy Kane’s “Smooth Operator” flattop haircut on Instagram—“Big daddy. Kane. V. K. R. S1,” Snoop wrote.
New York City will once again be the location for VERZUZ.
