In an interview with Nardwuar in April, Pusha T was given a copy of 1988's Long Live the Kane, and his eyes lit up. (As is their wont.) "First of all, I came to the conclusion that Big Daddy Kane was my favorite rapper just recently while I was creating Wrath of Caine," he said. "'Wrath of Kane' was the record that he did that made me be like, 'You know what? He wins. Big Daddy Kane is probably one of the flyest, most influential rappers.' That was probably the record that made me say that he was my favorite rapper of all time, like the best. Better than Rakim, which is a debate that I've been going through my whole life, as a youth and hip-hop addict."
