The Video Crates

Hiphop video's from the old to the new, from coast to coast, from bootyfilled to the conscious... If a link is down, just drop a comment and emailadres, and I will upload the file again. The only thing I ask in return is to leave a comment, telling me what you think of the video.

Rakim - When I Be On The Mic

Rakim's rhymes are legendary - we all know that. But had he fallen off over the years? On this album, it is apparent that he is still as sharp as ever and that his style even continues to develop. Aside from DJ Premier, who produced the 2 best cuts on the album, in my opinion, and DJ Clark Kent, there really isn't much going on in the way of production. "When I Be On the Mic" stands out from all other tracks, for sure. Perfect flow and wordplay to the tempo on that joint made it the obvious choice for the single.

    Dope dope vid. Rakim has got to be one of the most prolific lyricists in this damn Hiphop game- this, we all know.

    Love to see Premier, Busta (with dreads), Awesome 2, Rampage, etc.

    Classic Premier beat- clean.
