During a recent sit down with Montreality, the God MC Rakim gave props to the young emcees dominating the game today, including Kendrick Lamar.
“Kendrick Lamar is…that new fuel and it’s a conscious new fuel where he’s not just doing what’s hot for today,” said the Harlem native. “He has substance and he ain’t scared to make a statement either.”
Rakim also gave his thoughts on whether hip-hop had an age limit.
“If you still hold a pen well and doing your thing I feel that you should be labeled as far as what you do not how long you been in the game or where you came from.”
Peep the video below to also hear him speak about his upcoming album, his reaction to hearing J. Cole’s shoutout on his “January 28th” track and the real meaning of God according to Rakim.
