The New York City Council has put forward a proposal to declare Jay-Z’s birthday, December 4, as an official holiday in the city, aptly named “Jay-Z Day.” Introduced by council member Farah Louis in Resolution 849 last December, the initiative aims to celebrate the Brooklyn-born artist’s impact on the community and acknowledge his contributions to hip-hop.

TMZ recently sought the opinion of hip-hop legend Big Daddy Kane on this proposal. In response, Kane expressed his enthusiasm for the idea, emphasizing that hip-hop is not only a music culture but has evolved into a genre with the potential to create billionaires and become a leading music category. Kane sees the possibility of an artist like Jay-Z receiving a national holiday as a testament to hip-hop’s growth and influence.

During a recent appearance on Drink Champs, Big Daddy Kane also discussed his admiration for J. Cole, dubbing him his favorite MC of the past generation. Kane highlighted Cole’s lyrics and resilience, citing a specific line where Cole asserts his determination to succeed despite being overlooked.

While Big Daddy Kane remains a respected figure and influencer in the hip-hop community, his endorsement carries weight, especially for emerging artists like Benny The Butcher. As discussions around Jay-Z Day continue, the recognition of hip-hop’s impact on culture and society remains a central theme. Perhaps, as Kane suggests, the hip-hop community could see more artists honored with national holidays in the future. Stay tuned for the latest updates in hip-hop news and culture.
