        Great interview by the Breakfast Club they showed the God love!!
        Seems like Daddy O has been hating on him lately i know why...Bottom line is Daddy O is a Stan
        1st Rakim was his hero, he said he defended Rakim's GOAT status for years up until he did that Sway Interview
        Like they say its a thin line between Love and Hate.Daddy O saw he was getting a little attention that he haven't had since the late 80's every since that Sway interview so he rolled with it adding more fuel to the fire in each interview mentioning Ra's name. Now he's saying we took what he's been saying out of context and would like to record with him. Nigga please! Ra definitely hold grudges ( i ain't no joke )look what happened between him and Eric and that took 25 years to mend. That was Eric, You's a Nobody
        We know who Ra rolled with and when they rolled, they rolled Heavy! { ask Iron Mike Tyson (Enforcer), Ice-T ( almost caught a buck 50 for the Rhyme Pays chain until Supreme Magnetic put the word out that he wasn't to be touched ), King Sun (caught slippin smokin a loosey was packing a 357 but out gunned Decepz had the drop on him for coming at Eric B sideways...Supreme spared him only because he was God Body) and Eric Sermon(Terror on the 14th floor nuff said!) } and what they did to your boy Paradise's club on a regular, the Head Counts the Real Reason why he wasn't on Self Destruction because of his affiliation to those same individuals that the song was about..{ The infamous Brooklyn Mob, Paid in Full Posse, Fort Greene Supreme Team(R.I.P Killer Ben, The Real 50 cent, JuJu, Fly Ty ), Wolf Pack(R.I.P Keith"Money"Green ) Deceptz (R.I.P Meg) Brooklyn Zoo }..and how they Taxed other Crews and Rappers and relieved them of their Keys, Diamonds and Gold (the real reason they started wearing African Medallions) ..Daddy O admit it he had more Juice in those 5 Burroughs than you ever had esp in East New York Brooklyn (R.I.P Bill Blass )where your'e supposed to be from.. so i guess his statement does rings true ( it ain't where your'e from, its where you at!! ) while Ra was on some metaphysical shit you was talking petty gang banging 101 (what set you from type shit). Ra never had to glorify how hard He or His Team was and he never dry snitched for props..( he got Property ).. .didnt have to.... Peace War
        Al Capone was from Brooklyn but Chicago made him what he was, so whatcha saying..

                  This man has class, ruggedness, and more manliness than most of the rappers out there. If he is less than number 1 on your list..... Check your list again. Thank you Rakim.

                    I go to Queens for queens, then get the crew from Brooklyn
                    Make money in Manhattan and never been tooken
                    Go Uptown in the Bronx to Boogie Down
                    Get strong on the Island, recoup and lay around
                    Time to build my juice back up
                    Props stack up, suckers get smacked up

                    Rakim killed that back in 92

                                                                I like Rakim he keeps it honest n real never compromised his gift. A brotha with integrity from tha hood not too many of them around anymore. You can tell about how he explained about Dre. Wow. He wanted him to be gangsta with it but he was the knowledge. Dudes wit wisdom n knowledge dont need gangsta they are islands to themselves leaders not followers. "Follow the leader" he should have known.

That nigga is just cavaleirly talking about creating genius level work lol. like "nah i dont got shit, but if u got a couple minutes i'll paint the mona lisa by hand for you"

                                                                    • Omowàle Zaquir

                                                                      I was a senior in high school when Paid in Full dropped, I wore that tape out, had to keep rewinding in amazement. I lost count of how many times I bought that album.

                                                                      Like Ra said “RAP is Rhythm and Poetry!” And this Brother is in my opinion, the greatest Poet to ever bless the Mic.

I’m 49 years old and I remember when I was in high school kids used to say who’s better Rakim or Big daddy Kane ? Rakim always won. Even his swag was ill, he never used to smile he didn’t dance only did the two step and hung out with real gangsters. Kane on the other hand was dancing all over the place and doing songs with Barry White .I was like what the fuc is he doing lol. He started out RAW then he’s the prince of darkness standing by a piano lol The R never switched up. Everybody all ways saying Biggie or Jay-Z is the goat, hell no , RAKIM ALLAH is the goat, shit he was saying in the 80s niggas can’t touch that now in 2019 Facts! RAKIM changed the flow of rap, he made brothers think about what they was writing down instead of nursery school rhymes . peace to the god RAKIM

But all of them bounce around the fact the Hip Hop has taken a wrong turn into crap rap. I don’t hear this development with these alleged artists of the lady 15 years
