There was a golden age of hip-hop. In that guilded time, acts like Eric B. and Rakim ruled the realm, setting the stage for the genre's domination of American popular music in the decades that followed. The Source, the source of all non-static noise in hip-hop nation says that Rakim is the number one lyricist of all time. We noted this while appreciating classic tuneage by the duo like “I Know You Got Soul” and “Paid in Full.” Those works pre-saged a solo career that took off as the millennium approached. The 18th Letter, finally dropped in 1997 and by the early aughts, Rakim had established his solo cred. The Seventh Seal, a record from back in 2009, secured his rappish legacy. Interested listeners can ch-check out Rakim's intricate flow, and lion-hearted musical mastery when he makes an appearance at Sister on Thursday, Nov. 8 at 8pm. Tickets to this 21+ encounter with the New York flava range in price from $25 to $30 and the show itself is bound to give an ill chill to those in the mood for some mind-bending beats.
