My Journey With Hip-Hop - Part 3

One of my childhood friends' stepfather turned me on to Rakim back in 1990. I was at their house one day and his pops, Dee pulled me aside and asked me if I knew anything about rap. My response was typical for a young guy who was in tune with the mainstream hits, "Yeah, Run DMC, LL, Salt N Peppa...I heard of them" That's when he looked at me as if I didn't know my own name, "You never heard Rakim, the greatest rapper alive?!?!"
He began reciting "Thinkin of a master plan, Cuz ain't nuthin but sweat inside my hand..." He found the record, played it, and it blew my mind!
