Rakim... the real deal

really really feelin this joint today... THIS is a lyrical genius.

epic track despite - or rather partly as a result of - its jarring blasphemy... some say he's just using clever wordplay. as far as i know Ra is a 5 percenter. it's not christian doctorine, but the history is intriguing. it's too bad a legend like Ra doesn't have a message that i desire to spread. at best the words will spur us on to think and reflect on the deeper meaning. but at the end of the day let's remember there is only one god.
