rakim : the one true god

November 20, 2009


Ten years in the waiting, The Seventh Seal has dropped...

...and goddamn, that is one bad record.  Really awful.  I guess every single top-shelf producer and same-weight-class-MC was in Barbados or Minnetonka that week, so he had to settle for a bunch of cats he found at the bus station or some shit.  It's like Marlon Brando making his big return to acting by guest starring on Everybody Loves Raymond.

So instead, just get yourself 'Holy Are You', cool out to some more unreleased cuts and remixes, and let us never speak of it again.
