i gotta admit though, i've not heard much rakim.... so i need to check out some rakim stuff cus i hear nothing but good things about his music, so that'll probably be the direction of my next few purchases...
and i know what some of you are thinking... "and you call yourself a true hip hop fan!" lol....
but hey, i believe in listening to music organically (when the time is right for you, you know...) and i feel its time to start my rakim studies...
