Rakim

"One particular event that had people flocking to the upper west side of the city [on 4/20] was the West NYC x Milkcrate Athletics event powered by AMPMNY that paid homage to one of hip hops most respected pioneers of all time, Rakim. The Godly Collaboration features a West and Milkcrate tee collaboration with a Rakim image on it captured by photographer Janette Beckman, she captured the Golden Era of Rakim in his iconic stance in stark black and white quality photo. Aaron LaCrate held down the turntables for the God Emcee, It was a great night with a lot of die hard hip hop fans at West 147 NYC." [Jungle Gym]
In May Rakim is heading over to Europe for a tour. On August 21st he plays a free Central Park Summerstage show with EPMD and Funkmaster Flex in NYC.

A set of pictures and a couple of videos from the West 147 event are in this post, and they continue below...

Rakim is dope, but that event looks like it was filled with a bunch of HERBS!
