"holy are you:" rakim

Rakim "Holy Are You"

This single is the truth. The "God MC", Rakim is one of the most commonly evoked but heavily under-appreciated rappers in the history of hip hop. Largely responsible for the type of lyricism and word play popularized by the likes of Jay-Z. This newest single, "Holy Are You", released by the rapper on July 14th, is off his upcoming release, The Seventh Seal. It will be available on iTunes starting tomorrow, July 28th. Support one of the greatest, as this CD will be the first from his own label, Ra Records/G&E Trust and SMC recordings. The album is slated to be released sometime this fall.
