Never heard Rakim
« on: June 06, 2005, 08:16:45 AM »
If you ran into someone who has never heard of Rakim, what five songs would you suggest that would give this person a general idea of the greatness of Rakim?

I would choose...
1. 18th Letter
2.Casualties of War
3. Follow the Leader
4. Mahogany
5. The Ghetto

I love Waiting for the world to end... it sticks relatively good in the head of people who dont give a crap about rap too, because some dudes who never hardly listen to rap that came over liked it also a little, so I guess it's a good choice
Cause I don't care where I belong no more
What we share or not I will ignore
And I won't waste my time fitting in
Cause I don't think contrast is a sin
No, it's not a sin
