I went to college with this girl who was like one of the deepest hip-hop headz I'd ever met in my life. She used to be so disgusted with me because I enjoyed commercial hip-hop as much as I enjoyed underground hip-hop. But after I started writing for an underground hip-hop magazine, I realized why she was so frustrated with me. The lyric scheme, the themes, the style, and the presence of underground artists are EXTREMELY different. It's strange to me to actually turn my base down and actually listen to the lyrics that the rapper is spitting cause I usually just listen to beats and block them out. With Rakim, you were rewinding all over the place like "What'd he just say? Aw, hell naw, he said that? Man, that was tight". It was a neverending story that I was excited to hear. I don't quite understand why Jay-Z believes he's the best rapper alive when Rakim is still strutting around. The only reason Rakim got a star knocked off is because his beats weren't that great. But...lyrically...this is it!
