One of the greatest, if not, the greatest mc to ever grace the mic. Grandmaster Flash might have made rapping an actual thing, but it was Rakim who made it an art, spitting words like some hip hop messiah. As example “They never grow old, techniques become antiques/Better than something brand new ‘cause it’s real/And in a while the style’ll have much more value” from the track "Don't Sweat The Technique". Or how about the chorus of "when I'm Flowin", "Yo, I find a show, rhyme til it's time to go, I'm designed to blow, my mind's inclined to flow
Yo, my M.O., makin all kind of dough, From the info that Rakim show, y'know?"

See? Isn't that just flatout incredible! Worth the attention if your any sort of rap afficiando
