Rakim In Columbus Tonight

YouTube Preview Image

I used to shoplift  magazines from Little Professor Bookstore  that debated this song as Existentialism’s first arrival into Hip Hop. So then I started stealing books with Existentialism in the title.

Never seen Rakim live.  Blueprint and Illogic open for him  tonight @ Alrosa Villa.

Pretty excited.
