On my feet, dancing and shadow boxing in my living room spitting Rakim's masterpiece lyrics to the best of my ability while remembering what it felt like when I first heard this amazing song in the 80's!!! WOW!!! I am not good at remembering nor repeating lyrics usually, but this track along with Whodini's "Friends" & "The Freaks Come Out At Night", and a couple of Run DMC and BDP songs were ones that I tried SO hard to remember!!! Thank you Rakim!! Thank you Hip-Hop and Thank You RUvid!!!!

Feed me hip-hop and I start tremblin (in naughty by nature's hip-hop hooray Pete Rock remix) Kick a hole in the speaker Pull a plug and I jet (method man/limp bizkit-n 2getha now) I am whatever you say I am - Eminem Shouldn't have left you without a dope beat to step to - Aaliyah/timbaland "try again" Shouldn't have left you Without a few nieces n nephews - timbaland/missy "cop that shit" That's all I can think of off the top of my head. His DNA is all throughout music from decade to decade. Your favorite rappers favorite rapper might be rakim. Sad he's unsung. Dude was basically the architect of rap, especially considering the much simpler rhyme schemes going on at that time. Don't forget the brother had depth. If this dude isn't in your top 10 rappers (maybe even top 5), your list isn't valid.

Why didn’t they arrest him for this. They should’ve arrested him as soon as he left the booth. He killed it.The Goat!
Juan Pablo Porras Lara
Arrest him for what! For the lyrics? So if that it's the case the 98% of the musicians would be in jail. The politicians that are the roots of every single problem like drugs, conspirations , etc, they are the ones that should be in jail instead of musicians expresing the thuth. You should be in jail for being such a closed minded perdón that don't have enough mental capacity to understand these kind of music. Probably You love reggaeton and their lyrics are Even worst and Even the Bad Bunny is Proud of being an iluminatis and that he had make pacts with the devil and he days that now people goes to him to sell their souls to the devil to get fame, money and all the shit about it!

The music is as good as the ears that hear it and the mind that processes it.I am 50 now and to me this was, is true rap music. We were different then, simpler, yet more complex in thought. We felt more so our music reflected just that. These are shallow minded and shallow heart times and most new rap is the same. We had it so good and did not even know it...

This song is tight as F... I've only ever heard the Rage Against The Machine version previously... which is pretty kickass, but this is smooth, and just vibes.

The radio has always been shit when it comes to hip hop except for maybe NYC, Philly & LA....I know in the DMV the radio has been pretty terrible for a long time,I think the 1st few decent songs I remember hearing on the radio in DC were “OPP” Naughty by Nature,”Summertime” Fresh Prince & “Humpty Dance” by Digital Underground,other than that it was straight R&B up until the mid 90’s
