Big Daddy Kane took to Instagram to air out a few issues, even the O.G’s are taking to social media for ! Big Daddy Kane says that “Macklemore should be celebrated, not criticized, for his single “Downtown” single with Ryan Lewis, whose video features Rap pioneers Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee and Grandmaster Caz.” Macklemore also featured the rap veterans Sunday (August 30) in his VMA performance of the song.

“We don’t acknowledge our own & get mad when another color does,” Big Daddy Kane says. The post was removed from his account, but below is what he had to say! Do you agree?

REAL TALK!!! I don’t see one artist in the game that put Melle Mel, Kool Moe Dee or Grandmaster Caz on their new song or let them perform on the VMA’s (Including Me) but people wanna have a problem with @macklemore for paying homage to them?” Big Daddy Kane wrote on Instagramyesterday (August 31). “We don’t acknowledge our own & get mad when another color does. Now if one of them passes, then we wanna post shit about them, say RIP & get t-shirts with their picture. FOH!!!!!!! Learn about your history & preserve it now. If not, SHUT THE FUCK UP!!! To me this is about real pioneers getting recognition in today’s society.”
