Throwback Thursdays: “Guess Who’s Back” Rakim

I remember when this came out back in 1997. Rakim dropped an ill album that November. Only problem is it would be heavily overshadowed by a new King from Marcy whose album dropped the same day.

    oh Wale signed with them..good look…i like some of his stuff…so does that mean he’s not running with Mark Ronson anymore?

    Also..This song is better than Lil Wayne’s first 11 albums put together…

    haha wayne doesn’t have even up to 6 albums i don’t think.

    rakim is classic. i’m only 21. so i don’t really remember his era as well as others may. but i did see him @ some concert in central park last summer, and he rocked the shit outta the joint, wearing a dartmouth varsity jacket and fitted no less. good grief. he has crowd control and he sounds like he could rap while running sprints. if that makes any sense. i’m done. i have no more comments. the video is crucial though.
