Do you miss “real hip-hop”? Well, Rakim does, and he wants the world to know it on the aptly titled, Hip-Hop, located on the March 4th release of The Archive: Live, Lost & Found. Reminiscing about the days he spit bars of fury next to Eric B., Rakim does more than just rhyme about the “golden years;” he explains the differences. Citing “pop charts are killing underground Hip-Hop” isn’t something that many fans or followers could argue with, right? Since the ’99 release of The Master, the Long Island native has yet to drop a new full-length studio album. However, The Archive: Live, Lost & Found will contain four never-before-heard tracks. Now that is hip-hop!
