Daddy-O Clears Air on Rakim Comments | Down With The Kings

Daddy & Rakim


The internet recently caught fire after Daddy-O of the legendary hip hop group, Stetsasonic made controversial and critical comments against another hip hop legend, Rakim when he appeared as a guest on Sway In The Morning.

Daddy-O said, “Rakim told the biggest lie in Hip-Hop. [On ‘I Know You Got Soul’], he said, ‘It ain’t where you’re from, it’s where you’re at.

Die hard fans of the “God MC” weren’t happy about the attack and immediately went into a fury challenging the ten second sound bite suggesting that Daddy-O was “trying to make a comeback” or “looking for attention” plus a collection of other comments.

Daddy-O stopped by Down With The Kings to talk about the situation.

Stetsasonic’s Daddy-O on #EverybodyButKRS

After more than a decade since the release of his last solo album, the legendary Daddy-O of the hip hop band Stetsasonic offers up his brand new solo effort #EverybodyButKRS.

The album title pays direct homage to the lyrical skills of another legend in the hip hop game, KRS-ONE while directly challenging his peers at the same time to step up their game and take back hip hop because as it stands, no one can even come close to challenging Daddy-O’s lyricism…with the exception of one person.

As Daddy-O said in an interview with Down With The Kings, “The only guy I could give the ultimate props to is KRS – he’s the only guy to me untouchable in hip hop. He’s the only hip hop untouchable so I said well, everybody else is fair game.”

The album is a collection of edgy hard hitting beats with a bevy of truthful and clever rhymes.  When asked what KRS-ONE thought of the show of respect Daddy-O said,”He’s going to be surprised, He doesn’t even know that I have that much respect for him. He knows I love him but he doesn’t know that I have that much respect for him.”

Pick up the new album on Odad Truth Records via iTunes or Rap Central Station (
