8 Disappointing Rap ‘Comebacks’ (pg. 8)


The Rapper: Rakim

The Return: A full decade after releasing his 1999 sophomore solo album, The Master, the God MC delivered his third project, The Seventh Seal.

The Reaction: “Walk These Streets,” featuring Maino, was dope. But, the rest of the album? Well, let’s just say that even Michael Jordan had off days towards the end of his career. Sorry, Ra, but all that time with the Doctor in the mid-2000s definitely did not do your new body of work any good.
