Rakim @ Underground Arts with Chill Moody, Freeway, Reef The Lost Cauze and More.

041615RakimOnline08Rakim hit the stage at Underground Arts last Thursday in full ’90s swagger. In a pair of baggy jeans, new Timberlands, over-sized Carhart jacket and a Yankees cap tilted slightly to the side, the legend stood before the crowd and just let the cheers envelope him.

After nearly a solid minute of posing, the 47-year old, who made such classic albums as Paid in Full and Follow the Leader, then burst into an attitude-filled set.

At some shows, you’ll find the true fans singing along to every word at the front of the crowd. While Rakim was performing, it seemed that everyone in the packed house knew every word to all his tracks. It made for a pretty special evening.

Dyme-A-Duzin opened the night, which was a Red Bull Sound Select show curated by Veteran Freshman. Chill Moody followed and then presented a parade of Philly rap talent, including Freeway, Reef the Lost Cauze, Jakk Frost and more.
