I am so disapointed with this Rakim business. It has become a joke to read new bullshit concerning this project. I may be Rakims biggest fan, but damn, what the fuck is really going on with Aftermath. Dre is so concerned about making a classic that he might fuck up whats already great. They have been in this game for a long time now, they don't have to learn what to do. How long does it take? Paid in Full is a classic Reasonable Dout is a classic, Illmatic is a classic Doggystyle is a classic, how long did they take. Even the Cronic didn't take this long and if it did we didn't know because we wasn't looking for it. If this is the price to pay for a classic, then give me three hot albums rather than one classic within the same time frame. I would like to see Rakim pump out a couple more albums but at this rate I'd be lucky to hear OMG before he retires. They both are kissing 40 and regardless how great Ra is he can't do this at a high level forever. You know what happens when you go pass your prime, ask Micheal Jordan, Ali, Run DMC. The Source article was a joke. Why did they even do an interview, to tell us about Rakim and Kane? Ra would'nt even talk about his relationship with Dre nor give real any information on the album. Two songs complete, out of all this time and out of all we've heard. Dre got tracks on everybodies shit but he can't seem to perfect a beat for Ra. Something ain't right about this picture. I hope this is part of the surprise that Ra talked about in the article and that they are just putting up smoke screens to keep down bootlegging and leaks. Oct 2000 was when the news got out and I have been waiting for and reading every release date, starting with Spring 2001, Fall 2001, Summer 2002, Fall 2002, Winter 2002, early 2003, whats next?

If there wasn't such a thing as the internet everybody would be looking forward to that album instead of spreading rumours, condemnin Dre, etc. The album will come out. Rakim ain't Hittman. Rakim is the GOAT, Dre is forced to bring out this album. I don't care whether it's comin out this year or next year. Dre signed Ra two years ago... still no album.... so what?? Stay patient. Rakim ain't Jay-Z. He doesn't bring out two albums every fuckin year. That's just not him.

Well,to me the bad sign is when Rakim wouldnt even discuss his relationship with Dre.Thats not good and I believe they are having conflicts or creative difficulties.How sad,Dre might have dropped the ball on the greatest mc ever.

Its simply my opinion that Dre has dropped the ball.Also the fact that 50 cent has an album coming out very soon with an ad in the source is a slap in Rakims face.Again thats just my opinion.%0 cent has been signed only for a few months and he already has an album coming out.Rakim has been on aftermath for 2 years and no album.There is obviously a problem,im just using common sense here.We are all entitled to our opinion and I strongly feel that this wont ever see the light of day.Kind of sad considering the talent that Dr.dre posseses.But he continues to pump out hits for the likes of Eve,Mary j Blije,Busta,Xzibit,the list goes on.But he cant hook rakim up with some tight joints.Give me a break.Im the biggest Dre fan here,dont get me wrong but I just feel that they are having creative difficulties.

Dre and Mel-Man already wrapped up their work on 50 Cent's album.  Dre will not do more than 3 tracks on this album...that is my guess.  This will be all handled by Eminem cause it is his dream to become a producer, and do a record.  So I think Dre has done his part for that album.  And his focusing on Rakim.

Focuing on Rakim, Damn how much focus does he need. Rakim said he was about to sign with Dreamsworks before Dre signed him. I think he should have done so and just got some beats from Dre like everybody else. This seems to be the only way to get dre to work in a timely manner, because its not on his dime. Alot of established artist want beats but don't want Dre, and he keeps showing us why.

If I was an MC I'd sign with Aftermath. Period.

P.S. I'm no Dr Dre dick rider........

did you all read the article at thaformula.com with rakim, mel, dre, and Primo all chillin together in the studio working on the album.  It sounds like it's coming out to me. but it definitely looks like they are trying to make a masterpiece. that article says dre and primo will be doing a track together :o

I know that, but this has been a spark that started in 92 when Dre first mentioned wanting to work with Ra. I know my Rakim history.
