Eric B. & Rakim - Follow the Leader
Produced By Eric B. & Rakim
"Follow me into a solo, get in the flow
And you can picture like a photo
Music mix, mellow maintains to make
Melodies for emcees motivates the breaks
I'm everlasting, I can go on for days and days
Wit rhyme displays that engrave deep as x-rays
I can take a phrase that's rarely heard
Flip it, now it's a daily word"
Wow, where do I even start? I was speaking with Wayne about this song earlier today, and he stated that it may be the best song ever (and it's also his favorite video of all time!), to which I responded that I really can't argue with it being called the best song ever. I could have posted all the lyrics above, since the entire song is a quotable really. CLASSIC beat here as well, with Rakim showing why he is often referred to as the God MC.
