WATCH GRANDMASTER CAZ VIDEO
Grandmaster Caz, a pioneering hip-hop MC and DJ, proudly took credit for spawning Rakim and Big Daddy Kane and by extension all the Jay-Zs (rappers who came later and benefited by the pioneers).
When asked by Cristina who he came to see perform and touch the stage, Caz responded, "Of course the god Rakim and my son, Big Daddy Kane. Alright, those are my direct influences, (my influences) go to straight to them, you know what I mean. They are the people who eventually led to the Jay-Zs and when you follow the rap lineages, it all traces back to me."
