So this is the time of day when I put on my fake mustache, spectacles, and cardigan sweater, and say "Brush up on your history, kids." But not really, because this documentary is one that everyone, myself included, needs to watch. The majority of heads who hit this site likely know that Rakim is a legendary emcee. But Reebok and Complex allow us to get a glimpse into his magic, his impact. Don't sleep. This is nine minutes well spent. This short film documents Rakim's New York roots, his partnership with Eric B, and the long-reaching effects of his legacy on the genre.
