Rakim + EPMD + Funkmaster Flex at Central Park Summer Stage 2011 August 21 – Video and Photo Highlights


It doesn’t get any better than this folks.  Reigning lyrical king of hip-hop and self proclaimed “God-MC”, Rakim, and one of the best duos in hip-hop history, EPMD (with Master of the Mix winner, DJ Scratch on the cut), join forced with DJ titan, Funkmaster Flex on August 21, 2011.  Though threatened by severe mid-late afternoon thunderstorms, this show went on and delivered!    Rakim soared through his legendary anthology solo with the confidence of a King, which he is.  Happy 25th anniversary to the incredible ‘Paid In Full‘ album!
