You might have seen me talk about this guy a few times on this site, and I wanted to make a topic about his music.

He influenced many of our rappers today, back in 1987, when he was just 17.
He's widely regarded as one of the most influential and most skilled emcees of all time, and I see him as very underrated in the rap world. His flow is smooth as syrup, and his rhymes have meaning and content, which most rappers these days lack. He's known as Rakim Allah, Ra, R.A.K.I.M., The Master, The God Emcee, The God.

I'll start from 1998.
