Big Daddy Kane isn’t "half steppin’" on the production of his upcoming Netflix documentary. He has tapped heavy hitters like Jay-Z, Eminem, Doug E. Fresh and more to star in the doc titled Paragraphs I Manifest.
Rap icon Big Daddy Kane has been putting in work behind-the-scenes for his upcoming Netflix documentary. And we can’t wait. He’s a significant trailblazer during Hip Hop’s Golden Age, serving up classic albums like Long Live the Kane and It’s a Big Daddy Thing.
Fans knew something was up when he started posting pictures with legendary rappers like Jay-Z. At first, fans thought Big Daddy Kane & Hov were collaborating on new music, but now we know that’s not the case.
During a recent chat with HipHopDX, the Hip Hop pioneer confirmed he has a list of Hip Hop heavy hitters to be featured in his new doc, which include Jay-Z, Grammy winner Common, Eminem, Doug E. Fresh, KRS-One, and more.
“I got JAY-Z, Eminem, KRS-One, Doug E. Fresh,” he said. “I even got some of the battle rappers like Goodz Da Animal and Aye Verb, so it’s coming out real good. I’m supposed to do Common on Monday," he said.

After wrapping up his chat with Common, he shared a flick of himself standing alongside Common with the caption, “Much love to @common and the StuyVision crew. We almost done. #paragraphsimanifest.”
“The main reasons why I really wanted to do this is because I see so many talented young artists that have unique styles. And they make hit songs but a lot of things that artists don’t understand is for longevity purposes your listeners have to tune into you as the artist ,” Big Daddy Kane told AllHipHop.com.
“[It’s] just trying to show the younger generation The importance of lyricism so they can have that longevity in the game. I have nothing but love and respect for the younger generation and I want to see them achieve the things that a lot of cats from our generation achieved to make it to where we can still be around today, 30-something years later,” he continued.
Kane’s Paragraphs I Manifest is still in production and an official release date hasn’t been released yet, but we’ll keep you posted.
