Blackout Top News

Ahead of the sell-out Black Star, De La Soul and Rakim tour (London on 10 May and Manchester on 11 May) we persuaded UK rap royalty Blak Twang to interview one of the all-time greats to ever rock the mic, Rakim, aka the God MC. He talks about classic albums like Paid In Full and Let the Rhythm Hit ‘Em, explains why you shouldn’t read out your rhymes and how hip-hop is killing the neighbourhoods. We couldn’t put this up without including some of those incredible Eric B & Rakim joints that still sound fresh today, so turn it up and let it move you.
