Close me! My Account My Cart. The mic lebanon teflon don.. I'm back baby The year of the 9s And ima have to make these motherfuckers a offer they can't refuse Yknow? Ha, what's goin on? Yo cmon, you know it's on I wrote a song, test my flow on the autobahn Make sure the force is right, I floss all night Get off the mic it'll smoke like an exhaust pipe Keep em in the lie-bury, studyin my theory Ra theory get translated in swahili From the lands as far as zanzibar They understand the are, the man allah Its obvious why the copiers, they copy this Soon as my data processes y2k they floppy disk Now who the hottest is?
Top charts. New releases. The Master Edited. Rakim January 1, Add to Wishlist. Listen to this album and millions more. First month free. When you've been named the best rapper ever in countless readers' and critics' polls, it must be easy to get a bit complacent. And as a veteran who's been on the mic since yes, there are several rappers who weren't even on the earth back then , it also must be easy to make a few concessions to all the rappers and delivery styles that have come since Kangols were all the rage -- the first time, that is.
Thankfully, Rakim 's second solo album shows hip-hop's best rapper outdoing himself yet again, and not conceding a whit to '90s rap. Rakim has always been known for his laid-back flow and, accordingly, he never pushes himself here; his flow is smooth as syrup, and will undoubtedly make hip-hop fans realize just what rhythm is after merely a few tracks. He plays with internal rhymes one of his trademarks and constructs the most dense lyrics heard in hip-hop for years.
The productions are tough and catchy no strings here, thankfully , but they never outshine the rhymes. Rakim praises himself on quite a few tracks "Flow Forever," "When I B on the Mic," "I Know," "It's the R" , but after a listen or two, listeners will likely agree with every boast he makes.
After one album The 18th Letter to get back into things, Rakim is arguably doing the best work of his career.Discover releases, reviews, credits, songs, and more about Rakim - The Master at Discogs. Shop Vinyl and CDs and complete your Rakim collection.
