Jeff Baraka x Rakim

A too brief conversation with The God MC, produced in association with HNHH and The Shrine Chicago.

Talking with Rakim was a big deal for me personally, because he’s one of my primary early influences as an MC (along with Big Daddy Kane, Chuck D, KRS-One and others). I wasn’t prepared to interview him when we first met (below), but he agreed to make it happen next time and followed thru… respect! Here’s a bonus off-camera segment.
