Rakim is one of the most influential and most skilled emcees of all time. Eric B. & Rakim's classic album Paid in Full was named the greatest hip hop album of all time by MTV and Rakim himself was ranked #4 on MTV's list of the Greatest MCs of All Time. A$AP Rocky's mother named the PMF after the GOD MC himself. Those are some big shoes to fill.
