Reseña de álbum

Fans disappointed by the continued delay of the third Rakim solo album, The Seventh Seal, will perhaps find some solace in The Archive: Live, Lost & Found, which, as the title suggests, contains mainly live cuts as well as four new, previously unreleased tracks. Perhaps find solace only because the songs, the first four on the record, don't stand out as particularly strong parts of the rapper's discography, either alone or with Eric B. The single, "It's Nothing," has been in Ra's concert repertoire since 2006 (and in fact is even included as a live cut later on). It takes a decent but almost boringly straightforward DJ Static beat and has the MC rhyming about his skills and what he brings to hip-hop; not bad by any means, but very standard fare. Rakim sounds better when doing his older, more classic material, and the sound quality from the performances (many, if not all, are from New York) is good, and displays his smooth, effortless flow well, helping to reestablish why he's considered one of the greatest MCs ever. He runs through all the favorites — "Paid in Full," "Follow the Leader," "My Melody," and "Eric B. Is President," the latter on which he changes the references to his former partner to let everyone know that he is indeed not there — and he does them well, and is clearly performing to an excited and appreciative crowd. Because, however, the audience is not miked, the numerous times Rakim lets his fans fill in the lines are nearly inaudible to the album listener, and rather pointless because of that. Still, it's clear he's still got his chops and talent, and though The Archive: Live, Lost & Found is not a replacement for an actual studio full-length, it helps to fill in the space while we wait.

Return of the R

Yo, this album will feed the mouths of starving hiphop fans. The flow on Love 4 Sale is sick and its a refreshing concept from the God Rakim. Peep his story telling! Word on the street is Rakim is back and still flowin' ex. casualties of war was 11 years ahead of its time!! It's Nothing is vintage Ra,the second verse is crazy "when the God spit, im still the yardstick for real performers". This is an appetizer for the 7th seal....get ready


Great The Game Needed This even though theres only 4 new songs the rest are live but classics none the less

Although he never became a household name, Rakim is near-universally acknowledged as one of the greatest MCs — perhaps the greatest — of all time within the hip-hop community. It isn't necessarily the substance of what he says that's helped him win numerous polls among rap fans in the know; the majority of his lyrics concern his own skills and his Islamic faith. But in terms of how he says it, Rakim is virtually unparalleled. His flow is smooth and liquid, inflected with jazz rhythms...
