DMX is going through it right now. But prior to his arrest earlier this week, the embattled rapper experienced something we can all appreciate -- he met his rap idol Rakim for the very first time. And it was all caught on video.
Just as important as charisma, rhymes and beats, personal style is one of the most important elements of a rapper's allure. An MC must also have impeccable taste to really flourish in the visual world of hip-hop. But following popular trends and bragging about brand names isn't enough to earn a spot in our Style Hall of Fame.
Veteran lyricist Rakim Allah received the prestigious I Am Hip-Hop Award during the 2012 BET Hip-Hop Awards telecast. If there's one rapper that embodies hip-hop, it's Rakim, whom many regard as the "God MC."
The BET Hip Hop Awards will air on the network on September 29th. The show takes place at the Boisfeuillet Jones Atlanta Civic Center. This year, they’ll be honoring a veteran who is widely known in the hip hop community as one of the dopest lyricists of all time – Rakim!
Talk about some serious hip hop HEAT hitting stages around the 518 this year! The list is pretty impressive and a lot of upcoming shows haven't even been announced yet. Of course you have Drake and friends at SPAC June 14th with the Club Paradise Tour, but there's some great shows coming to Northern Lights in Clifton Park as well!
