oh my god…

The record that most hip-hop fans…make that all hip-hop fans never believed would see the light of day along with Dr. Dre’s alleged Detox may finally see the light of day. The almighty G.O.A.T, Rakim is back. The album eight years in the making The Seventh Seal is supposed to hite stores the 15th of September via his own Ra imprint. Let’s be honest here, the man needs no introduction. Originally one half of one of the most influential acts in rap history, Eric B & Rakim, the former William Griffin is the original and still undisputed microphone fiend. His stern delivery and nimble wordplay allowed him to set the bar that very few rappers could even imagine ever nearing.

The first single taken from the record will be the Kid Capri (there’s a name from way back) produced Holy Are You.  It must be said that if anyone was havng doubts and hoping that Ra was going to bring the goods after news of the comeback became official, thos fears are immediately laid to eternal rest with the first BOOM. The production is slick and immediately lets the listener know ths isn’t some grade-school Soldier Boy track, this is New York hip-hop. There’s even scractches on the track! Scratches! When was the last time you heard scratching on a rap track? Suffice it to say that I’m convinced and I’m sure you will be too. All hail Rakim.

“Holy Are You”, taken from the forthcoming Ra release, “The Seventh Seal”
