As a journalist I can empathize with Nas’ desire to write Rakim’s biography. After more than twenty years of rewinding “The God MCS’ mind-bending couplets I couldn’t wait for the 15 minutes of camera time I was granted to discuss his new CD The Seventh Seal. But before I got into my questions I had to ask one of the most influential MCs ever how he felt having his life story turned into a song (“The Unauthorized Biography Of Rakim” ) by the one many said was  his heir apparent back in 1994. His response might surprise you.
