Rakim is a legend, no need to argue or debate that issue. This wonderful video, "Words by Rakim," is not only insightful into the world of an accomplished hip-hop artist, but an artistic approach to the medium of documentary shorts. Matt Bieler, great job.

Words is a re-introduction, and aural celebration of hip-hop’s most influential MC. Inspired by the vinyls that birthed the art form, the film is a portrait of two sides of an artist (A & B) and the streets and city he inspired. Two of his verses have been remixed … the words will never change.
