The ‘God MC’ Rakim will finally release his long-awaited new album Seventh Seal on the 23rd November.
Guest artists featured on the album include Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Maino, Styles P, and Rakim’s daughter Destiny Griffin.
I listened to the album last night and Rakim is still a master lyricist. In my humble opinion that will NEVER change.
When I hear him rap it takes me back to a time when only the skilled and talented ruled the world of Hip Hop.
Awww…those were the days…..
The Seventh Seal is a good album and Rakim’s die hard fans will be pleased, but I would have regarded it as being an instant classic if the overall production had been stronger and complemented Rakim’s effortless flow/top class lyricism. If his business relationship with Dr Dre had survived then I believe that this would have happened.
However I do recommend that you all check out the album when it drops.
