New York, NY

Rakim is ending 2020 going back to the classics.

The God MC is partnering with New York City mixtape maestro J. PERIOD for a live stream event titled The Live Mixtape: God MC Edition. Rakim will be performing classic hits from his albums with Eric B., never-before-heard freestyles and new remixes courtesy of J. PERIOD. The livestream will be topped off with a brand new music video from the two, shot on a rooftop in Brooklyn.

The show will mark Rakim’s first in a virtual setting and in his eyes, won’t be competing with the traditional ball drop to ring in the new year.
