Rakim Performs Classics Live at Summerstage [Video]

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Rakim performed a lively set as part of Lyricist Lounge’s  free Summerstage event at Brooklyn's Red Hook Park over the weekend. He ran through many of his classic rhymes and proved his legend status. As he often does, the God MC would put his mic down and let the audience finish his verses for him. As if hearing timeless cuts isn't enough, he brought out Styles P to rock his own short set. Watch clips of Rakim, the microphone fiend, as well as Styles P below.
