And I was disappointed to say the least. Rakim always has been one of my favorite artists, still is to this day, but let's just face it, this album is not that good.

The production is weak. Where the hell is Premo? Clark Kent? I would have expected some better producers for the God MC. Not a single beat really stood out for me. His lyrics are still good, but to me Rakim sounds old and tired on this album.

Nothing but love for Rakim, but he can do better than this.

Yeah I was shocked too. Let's face it man you gotta have some dough to invest into some quality production. Very low budget IMO. I gave it a fair shake though. Won't listen to it again. I was expecting something EPIC!!!!

I thought it was on point , the production was old school IMO .

I would like to see Rakim do a entire album with Soulful Kanye beats .

This album is a solid 4 .

most people on boxden are teenagers or early 20s who are too young to have found rakim relevant in a time when hip hop was a form of revolution. Now it's about financial status and not pure skill...look at how many say Jay is the best cause of his STATUS not cause he can out rap everyone because he CAN NOT!!!!
