I read the review on Rakim's album I completely disagree,I believe that Rakim has an album, that is exactly what it should be, a retrospective view on a Legend that has seen and done it all. The Rakim I hear is telling the story of how to live and process life, without compromising one's integrity, or the allowance of life run you, rather you running it. He does something that none of the popular MCs of today does, or better stated, has the courage to do, and that is, but not limited to, telling you the truth about how the fast life really affects one's life as seen through the actual experience that he went through, without glorifying of sugar coating the experience. Rakim gives you something that can use(knowledge)and tells you how not to loose. The review I read wants to retro fit this Icon back to the 80's and 90's,there's only one problem, we're not in the 80's and 90's lol!!, . But in the same way his words were relevent to that time then, his mature message is relevant to today. He is married with teens, he mother passed away, and the street life caught with him as it has done with all of us, yet his lyrical content(real talk that is)is still on point and still intact. In short like a song Rakim made on the 'Follow the Leader " album during the 90's this new abum is FOR THE LISTENERS,which means you have to listen to the album more than once,in order to make an intelligible comment on what is being said. And finally,hear what is being said today rather than living for yesterday. Thanx Nelson F. King Sr aka Flauxy Gz Reverbnation.comWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
