Dope interview!

One of the best interview I listened to in a while. Because most of the audience was really young I don’t think they could comprehend the impact of Rakim. It would be the equivalent of somebody coming out to today and rendering Drake, Rick Ross, J.Cole (all very good MCs) IRRELEVANT.

Listening to music Chairman Mao played took me BACK and literally sent chills up my spine, and got me amped the fuck up!!!

What got me amped was hearin’ his old school footage. Even when his rhyme style was simpler, it still seemed like he would have dusted off a lots of cats in that era. Funny that the “7 MC’s” line came from an older verse. I remember readin’ that by the time Ra dropped “My Melody”, those verses were a couple of years old already which would have made him 16 (!!!) comin’ up with that. Crazy…

A damn shame there wasn’t even a 5th Eric B. & Rakim album
