As one half of the famous hip hop duo, Eric B. & Rakim, his complex lyricism elevated hip hop to new heights. Rakim is still regarded by many as the greatest MC of all. Before Tupac, Biggie and Jay Z had even uttered a line of rhyme, the man born William Michael Griffin was routinely jostling for position on the Greatest of All Time lists, alongside Big Daddy Kane, LL Cool J, KRS-One, Chuck D, Melle Mel and Kool G Rap. His finest years were as part of the golden-age duo Eric B. & Rakim, but Griffin’s solo career had its highlights, too, and he remains an inspiration to many. His back catalogue raised the bar for all the artists to follow.
