This is cool but I like Clark Kent's mix better. It was laid back like a Cali joint but you could still feel the NY in it. And the vocals on this sound like they're goin' off-sync startin' on the second verse...hold up, it goes all the way off by the end. Nah, this is wack...
Rakim dope! arabic sampled damn shit hard!
1995? fucking with me? Thats what I sound like TODAY... lol damn... my shit that old?
since the first time i heard 'follow the leader' as a 13yr old in 97,, that's all i could think about,, THIS GUY IS RAPPING LIKE THEY DO NOW,,, AND ITS HOW OLD?
RAKIM IS THE BEST RAPPER ALIVE.. NOTE, ALIVE. UNTIL HE IS GONE THAT SENTENCE CANT CHANGE.
MOST RESPECTED EMCEE OF ALL TIME
THE KING OF NY
God! Classic shit
I HAD to take off the headphones and BLAST this on the monitors. WHY was this not released on any album?
'95...and Ra was just snapping his warm ups off on that joint. Best flow ever.
That beat's so hard and Rakim can kill a sick beat like almost no other
This is "single" material and was never released??
The bottom line is this..you new jacks loggin on to hear the new 2Chains single or Lil Lame crap can't handle the fact that Rakim is cut from a different cloth of emceeing. Instead of the tired quick easy sell of fake millions and bottle poppin, he drops wisdom, knowledge, and on top of that, true dope lyricism. It's unfortunate you weren't taught what hip-hop is, the MTV era and FM radio killed it for you and that's unfortunate. rakim and Primo need to hook back up and put in work to take out the whole fake hiphop genre that is in effect right now.
Nuff said, word!!
maybe best single I've heard here in months
Ra all day fuckers
THIS IS THE TRUE GOD MC NOT FRAUD ASS JAY Z
straight fire by rakim old school shit
Damm classic , Ra truly is number one far as Mcees go. Keep in mind you are hearing a track from 95 damm
I prefer the Clark Kent version over this one. This one isn't as smooth.
New or Old its Rakim!!!!! Nothing else to say
DOPE! ART. REAL MUSIC
Lol playing this for hiphopdx is like playing lollipop at the club. yall gona eat it up no matter what it sounds like
but i like it
Rakim killed this! LYRICS!
You can tell he ghostwrote for some people.
OMG I SOOOOO WANTED TO HEAR A RAKIM TRACK FROM '95!!!!!
Rakim always makes timeless music,he's a lyrical genius...
washed up cornball fuck
The God is back!!!!!!
Much better one :D
I have totally different version of this song
You people don't realize this shit was recorded in 95? its not a new 2012 made song lol, fucking idiots.
Dayum this shyt is hot.
Real Hip-Hop right here!
damn, You can smell the 90's feeling
garbage... this tired old mowf bum hasn't sounded good since '94 and hasn't had a new "idea" since before then... anyone paying lip service to this dogshit never REALLY got Ra to being with.
No one's checkin for this old nigga no more. Hang it up. Radio'll never play yo shit.
You can't use the word "Manifest" any more Rakim, also you may way want to do an actual hook.
No thanks Rakim. Good Try though. Step those beats up man, it's 2012! Not 88'
I like it, pretty good.
So dope. This man is fucking legend.
what a fucking joke. on what planet is that a tolerable beat and since when does Rakim sond like a 4th rate jeru the Damaja? oh yeah, I know-- ever since Eric B. took the dookie ropes away.
old school dogshit lives!!
originals much better
Now that's how it is done.
