    Default Rakim for 2011

    I'm surprised with all of the hip hop artists and MC's being floated around that your favorite MC's favorite MC isn't being mentioned. This needs to happen at some point and 2011 is the time.

    Who cares? The guy is one of the most influential MCs ever, and helped shape 90s hip-hop, though I'm guessing you didn't know that.

    Clearly, Rakim and MGMT belong in the same discussion.

    Anyone who is against this idea can take their musical taste and shove it directly up their ass.

    Bump. Rakim is the perfect fit for Coachella and should happen next year, IMO.

    I think many would be disappointed with a live Rakim performance. KRS-ONE gives a much better live show experience and does much more crowd interaction. ATCQ would be the best answer though

    KRS-One drives me up the wall for whatever reason, plus he's played before. Been a while , yes, but he's been billed and Rakim hasn't. Rakim is a legend and while some people may assume he would disappoint, the guy is arguably the most influential MC in the history of hip hop and deserves a time slot.
