Rakim - formerly the MC of Eric B & Rakim - hasn't released a new album in a decade. At one point, he was signed to Dr. Dre 's Aftermath Records, and they worked on an album, but he's off the label so that album is locked in the vaults for now. But he hasn't lost his touch, just check out his verse in DJ Premier's remix of "Classic" - by Kanye West, Nas and KRS-One. But Billboard reports that he is about to return to the scene this month with The Seventh Seal. He is one of the greatest MCs of all time (if not the best), hopefully people will notice his album.
