a hip hop MC that, although is the greatest MC of all time, is often overlooked by people that dont realize hip hop has been around since before 1995 (the year 2pac joined death row). he was born in wyandach county in long island, new york. he converted to islam at 14. an example of a rapper that didnt have to have a criminal record to be the greatest.
"i take 7 mcs, put em in a line. then add 7 more brothas who think they can rhyme. but itll take 7 more before i go for mine. now thats 21 mcs ate up at the same time."

by the way. this new excuse for hip hop sucks (especially lil wayne).
rakim's "my melody" is the greatest display of lyrical ability ever.

Rapper who never sweats the technique, and is noted for being classical, too intelligent to be radical. Masterful, never irrelevant , mathematical.
Rakim and Eric B - they so good , that 'scientists try to solve the context, philosophers are wondering what's next'.

A dude with lots of swag and an ear for good music. If you're talking about hte legendary MC we're talking a genius and innovator of hip hop. From Wyandanch, New York he is regarded as the most gifted MC of all time. Don't ever forget him.

If we're talking Rakim Mayers (aka A$AP Rocky) we mean that Pretty motha...motha Pretty Flacko from Harlem, New York. He has been changing the sound of hip hop and bringing his own unique style to the hip hop and rap game. The young generations can only look forward to what his music will sound like as he continues to express himself in the multitude of ways only he knows how. Go Flacko! =J <3
Girl 1: Dannng... Look, it's Rakim!
Girl 2: Actually he's Rakim the second but woaaah...
Girl 1: Heard he's been putting in work in the studio. Love his style. Has all that swag down doesn't he?

Girl 2: Tch... Yes girl. VERY Rare
