Hip-Hop Legend RAKIM is back with a brand new single entitled “Walk
These Streets” and he will be dropping a new album, THE SEVENTH SEAL
In Stores November 17, 2009.

His first full album of new material in almost a decade, The Seventh
Seal is Rakim’s contemporary observation of the Hip-Hop culture he
helped define. While staying loyal to his New York roots, Rakim has
created a body of work that encompasses the very best of regional,
underground and mainstream styles that are reformed and delivered
through his intricate lyricism and the seemingly effortless flow for
which he is revered. He has enlisted a slew of production talent
including Needlz, Nottz, Jake One, Nick Wiz, Ty Fiffe and more on the
album’s well-rounded tracks.

The artist states, “The Seventh Seal is my own revelation…my way of
taking the best of what Hip-Hop has to offer, what we as a culture and
a community have to offer, putting my stamp on it and leading us
forward while constantly respecting what we’ve already accomplished.
When you’ve been blessed with a career like mine, you develop a deep
relationship with the music, and that love is recognized by the true
heads that share it with you. You’ll see us keep building as we break
through each Seal…showing the best of what I can do in many forms,
bringing the energy and having fun, but first I’m laying that
foundation and give my longtime fans the conscious fire they expect.”
