One of the greatest emcees to ever handle a mic, Rakim comes to D.C.'s Howard Theatre for an OG hip-hop concert. Rakim could be considered a rapper's rapper, both when he was one-half of Eric B. & Rakim and in his work as a solo artist. He changed the face of the game with his lyrical dexterity, often-complex subject matter and booming voice. Rakim also pioneered a practice previously unknown to hip-hop, called internal rhyming, as well as cliffhanging and the use of metaphors with multiple meanings. Immerse yourself in the golden era of hip-hop when this rap legend takes the stage for a master-class in jazz-infused, stylistic music.

Rakim is still smooth as butter. Rocked all his classics.

Great show, but it should've started earlier. 11:45pm was pretty late for a Thursday night.
The sound system sucked pretty bad....Yo-Yo and Rakim did too much talking in between songs. I left bored and unsatisfied. Rakims show here a few months back was great!! idk what happened here...🙁
