Nas and Rakim: Two MC’s and No DJ

Nas and Rakim: Two MC's and No DJ

Influential and talented hip-hop MCs Nas and Rakim have both been hailed as two of the greatest rappers of all time. And, after years of speculation, they’ve announced plans to make an album together. Here’s hoping it is not just a marketing ploy but an actual marriage of their similar – and brilliant – rhyme skills. MTV reports:

“I always respected Nas,” Rakim said. “He was always a lyricist, and I always respect a true lyricist. Me and Nas got a rapport, we go back. He used to come up to Power Play Studios [located not far from Nas’ home base in the Queensbridge neighborhood of New York City] when I was working on my early albums. Watching him grow, and having respect for him and getting respect from him, is a beautiful thing.”
