Rakim at his best. Even better than Paid In Full at least as far as rapping goes.

His rhyme in the middle of the song was used as the centerpiece for the Zone- Eternal EP (Zone - Eternal) [Am I Eternal or an Eternalist].

Says Dub on sleeve, but says acapella on label which is correct. Same as US Press

There is also a U.S. issue of MCA 1256, on the "cloud" MCA label. Still has the "small hole" 7" design, like the U.K. version. Not sure if it originally came with a pic sleeve or not. See "More Images" for a label scan.

Quite possibly one of the best Hip Hop tunes ever. Rakim was a lyrical genius.
