    Big Daddy Kane spoke about the death of Kobe Bryant and how he believes Eminem is his equivalent in hip-hop.

    The tragic death of Kobe Bryant forced a lot of people to think about legacy in the intersecting worlds of sports and music, and in a new podcast appearance, Big Daddy Kane was prompted to name who he thinks is the closest thing to Kobe in hip-hop history. His answer makes a lot of sense.

    One of the all-time rap greats called into Cherie's World podcast with Cherie Johnson, explaining that he believes Eminem is the rap equivalent to Kobe Bryant. Telling a story about how he first met Kobe Bryant and his reaction after hearing of his tragic passing, Big Daddy Kane noted that he believes the closest thing to Kobe in hip-hop would be Em.


    Without giving much explanation, Big Daddy Kane's choice is actually pretty accurate, if you ask me. He speaks about how, before meeting Kobe, he was informed about his "cocky and arrogant" reputation, however, the basketball legend proved that incorrect in a few minutes. Eminem also doesn't have the squeakiest reputation. BDK went on to discuss how Kobe rose the ranks because of his pure talent on the court, which is another thing he has in common with Marshall Mathers. The Detroit icon earned his self-proclaimed Rap God title by being one of the best in his field, proving his superiority instead of simply stating it.

    Watch what Big Daddy Kane had to say below.

    Horrible analogy:

    Kobe is most ppls top 5 or 10 when he was alive. Kane said Kobe was Top 5.

    Em, is not Top 5 or 10 on most ppls list.

    The only caveat, is that, 1. BDK was taking a generational stance vs a GOAT one and 2. He was clearly caught off guard and said, I guess Em. But still, bad analogy.

    These old heads (Kane, G Rap and Rakim) be embarrassing themselves by sucking Eminem dikk every chance they can. Eminem more like the Rajon Rondo of rap.

    Stats wise maybe...skill wise? Nah. Drake is Mark Mcgwire, lol, for obvious reasons



    Nas = Tim Duncan. No flash, not as popular/commercially relevant as the people he's compared to, but he gets it done and is one of the best ever stats and skills wise

    Yes he is. Not on the Coli, lol, but look at all them Top 50 lists that everybody was doing a few months ago, Eminem is basically in everybody's Top 10. I'd have him closer to 10 than 5 on my list but given everything he's accomplished career wise, not to mention the skill level, he gotta be in the Top 10 ever unless you just hate him
