Rakim holds extensive sit-down with Montreality [Video]


Lyrical mastermind, rap icon and original God MC Rakim sat down with Canada’s Montreality recently for a 20-minute heart-to-heart about everything — and we mean everything. They got the god talking about his jobs as a teenager, what he thinks he may have been in a previous life, tattoos, what he has in his pockets, what he’s afraid of, what books he likes and much more. They even managed to talk about a little music.

This one was definitely interesting. I’ve never seen anyone get the 18th letter to open up like this. Good job, Montreality.
