Rakim was the first rapper who didn’t have to raise his voice to be heard. His style was complex yet conversational; every important rapper who followed took something from him. The fact that Rakim never released the perfect LP may have contributed to his relative obscurity, but the string of early singles he made with DJ Eric B. are enough. All of them are collected on this edition of 20th Century Masters. Each cut here is a mini-masterpiece. From “Eric B. Is President” to “Lyrics of Fury” to “Know the Ledge,” one can hear hip-hop undergo a rapid transformation as the result of Rakim’s leadership.
