Rakim is near-universally acknowledged as one of the greatest MC - perhaps THE greatest - of all time within the hip-hop community. It isn't necessarily the substance of what he says that's helped him win numerous polls among rap fans in the know... but in terms of how he says it, Rakim is virtually unparalleled. His flow is smooth and liquid, inflected with jazz rhythms and carried off with an effortless cool that makes it sound as though he's not even breaking a sweat. Back in the mid-'80s, Rakim teamed with Eric B., whose intricately constructed soundscapes made an excellent match for Rakim's more cerebal presence on the mic. The duo became a sensation in the hip-hop community with classics such as "Paid In Full" and "Follow the Leader." The legacy stopped after 4 albums and Rakim has since pursued a solo career. We are very pleased to welcome him to Slim's. Do not miss this show! TICKETS ON SALE THIS SUNDAY, JULY 2.
