    Re: MC Battles Round 1 Rakim Vs KRS One

    Rakim. There's a reason he's known as Rakim Allah.

    To this day he's not been matched. KRS is one of the best of all time but Rakim is untouchable.

    Rakim is the greatest MC of all time.

    Take the opening verse to Follow The Leader as an example, he says more and he says it better than most rappers manage in a lifetime.

    Follow me into a solo
    Get in the flow - and you can picture like a photo
    Music mixed mellow maintains to make
    Melodies for MC's motivates the breaks
    I'm everlastin, I can go on for days and days
    With rhyme displays that engrave deep as X-rays
    I can take a phrase that's rarely heard, FLIP IT
    Now it's a daily word
    I can get iller than 'Nam, a killin bomb
    But no alarm - Rakim will remain calm
    Self-esteem make me super superb and supreme
    But for a microphone still I fiend
    This was a tape I wasn't supposed to break
    I was supposed to wait, but let's motivate
    I want to see who can keep followin and swallowin
    Takin the making, bitin it and borrowin
    Brothers tried and others died to get the formula
    But I'ma let ya sweat - you still ain't warm, you a
    Step away from frozen, stiff as if ya posin
    Dig into my brain as the rhyme gets chosen
    So follow me and were ya thinkin' you were first?
    Let's travel at magnificent speeds around the Universe
    What could ya say as the Earth gets further and further away
    Planets are small as balls of clay
    Astray into the Milky Way - world's outasight
    Far as the eye can see - not even a satellite
    Now stop and turn around and look
    As ya stare in the darkness, ya knowledge is took!
    So keep starin soon ya suddenly see a star
    You better follow it cause it's the R
    This is a lesson if ya guessin and if ya borrowin
    Hurry hurry step right up and keep followin
    The Leader

    'It had to be done!'

    Did it? Did it really?

    I don't know who these people are, what they do or what the competition is so i'm going to throw any old answer out there, and that answer is: cat litter. Am I right?

    my lad was trying to explain how good the battle of the rappers is when watching 8 mile(?) seemed to me the winner is who can inult each other by speaking the quickest
