Rakim - Be Ill

Hip hop heads salivate at the thought of a new Rakim project, and the first single ‘Be Ill‘ featuring Masta Killa and Kurupt serves as a thirst-quenching banger! The lead single from the upcoming ‘God’s Network‘ project – Ra’s first new album in 15 years – not only sees the microphone fiend share the track with some elite emcees, but Rakim also produced the track (he fully produces the new album) and delivers the cuts as well!

The joint slaps hard, it’s a dusty, neck snapping boom bap joint with some underlying, haunting vocals for effect. Rakim is sharp on the mic as well, which is to be expected as one of the greatest emcees of all time, and Masta Killa and Kurupt also bring REAL fire to the track with dope verses. Ahead of the new album dropping July 26, check out this joint and get the head nodding!
