LINK: Rakim interview on Pitchfork
In a new interview with Rakim Allah on Pitchfork, the God speaks on his successful tour, recording his next album and why hip-hop needs to come together to save itself.
“When they created jazz years ago it was the best thing to happen since fried ice cream. But then you look at it now– it’s not so popular as far as [being] universal. The jazz lovers still support their music, but when you look at it on the wide span it went from being the only thing to one of the many. The same thing can happen in hip-hop if we take it for granted and don’t cherish it.”
