Rakim Says Jay-Z Is His Current Favorite Emcee

After years of rhyming, Rakim has cemented himself as one of the most respected rappers of all time. Recently, the emcee was asked about his current favorite emcee during an interview with BlokTV. While he was unsure at first, saying that many rappers are great for various reasons, he finally decided on one. His pick? Jay-Z.

"Taking me out of the equation?" he asked the reporter. "That's a good question because I look at a lot of different artists for different things. It's hard to name one. I be shocked when people still hollerin' at me. But, rap is so diverse right now. You got so many different styles and 🤬 . It's hard to say one."

Eventually, though, Rakim went with one name and said that it's hard not to recognize what Jay-Z has done in the game.

"As far as records, business, if it's clothing, Jay-Z man. We gotta start respecting those that's making a large foot print in the game. When you look at what Jay-Z's doing...That's a measuring stick for all the young brothers that's coming out. Don't do what he's doing, do as he's doing. Learn what made him successful. Don't follow his footsteps but figure out what he did to make him successful and get that paper, y'all."

    This sickens me and saddens me.

    Rakim used to be my favorite emcee but I can no longer respect his opinion, I guess his 2nd favorite rapper is Maino.

    I'm a huge Em fan but why would anyone catch feelings about another man's opinion on who is their favorite artist out right now? Jay-Z is a good pick and I think Rakim knows talent when he see's it. Anyone who catches feelings over this has problems.

    Eminem did murder Jay on his 🤬 , but not out of malice but out of respect for the honor of being the ONLY rapper to get a guest spot on the Blueprint.

    Other than that, everything Rakim said is 100% truth.

    I sure hope you don't believe that. As an aside, why does it matter what Rakim thinks? Yes, he was a great MC and arguably one of the best to ever pick up a mic, but he's still human. He has his biases and his failings. His opinion, and remember that's all it is, is no different and should hold no more weight than anyone on this site.
