New Releases: Rap Pioneer Rakim Delivers ‘The Archive: Live, Lost and Found’

Here’s a little something for the real hip-hop heads. Legendary rapper Rakim‘s latest release, ‘The Archive: Live, Lost & Found,’ features a little bit of everything from one of rap’s pioneers. The new album includes live performances, unreleased rare material and classics, such as ‘Paid In Full,’ ‘Microphone Fiend,’ ‘Move the Crowd’ and ‘I Ain’t No Joke.’

“We stuck in a time of drought/ Nothing to rhyme about/Ghetto or crime on the grind pulling iron out/Industry crying out/Major labels buying out/ Who put the fire out?/Real hip-hop is dying out,” Rakim spits on the first single “It’s Nothing.”

Real hip-hop — as we once knew it — may be dying out, but we’ve always got the classics and Rakim’s our Beethoven.
