Big Daddy Kane and KRS-One are gracing the VERZUZ stage at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

The upcoming battle is set to take place on October 17 and is helmed in partnership with the upcoming Chucky horror series. “It’s official,” Big Daddy Kane wrote on Instagram. “October 17th at Barclays Center. One time for the Culture!!!”

The matchup with KRS-One is one that Big Daddy Kane previously said he would actually consider doing. Speaking to HipHopDX, he shared, “If we can get it to happen with me and KRS-One, I would rather it be like a battle format. If it’s going to be me and Rakim, then we might as well just do it with the music. You know what I mean? I don’t really see him as a battle rapper.” He continued, “I think it would be better to just do it with just the music, if it’s going to be me and him. But KRS is a battle rapper, so it’s going to be me and him. I think we should do the music for the fans but also do a few rounds of battle rap.”

Elsewhere in music, The Weeknd confirmed that his After Hours followup is “complete.”
