This song RIGHT HERE is THE reason RAKIM is the GREATEST Hip-Hop MC of all time. NO ONE EVER can even match this microphone MURDER. Every verse just tortures that mic. HIs patterns and delivery can’t be matched. And this came out in 1988.
“Worse than a nightmare, you don’t have to sleep a wink
The pain’s a migraine every time ya think
Flashbacks interfere, ya start to hear
The R-A-K-I-M in your ear
Then the beat is hysterical
That makes Eric go get a ax and chops the wack
Soon the lyrical”
Salute to the GOD. Rakim Allah!!!
