Holy Are You

Rakim 

After months of speculation, the living legend Rakim Allah has graced us with a new heater.

He debuted “Holy Are You” at a live show and now we have the fresh leak to satisfy golden era hip-hop fiends. The track is off Rakim’s The Seventh Seal, set to drop September 15th.

Leave it to Ivan to already dig up the sample used in the R’s new song, a live performance of “Holy Are You” by composing & production luminary David Axelrod. Some might recognize Axelrod’sHoly Thursday” as the sample for the Swizz Beatz-produced “Dr. Carter” on the Martian’s Carter III.

Check out Hurricane’s sample & example analysis here, read a review of Rakim’s version courtesy of Mr. Adoso plus check below for a download link to both the sample & new song below. Shout to BMUSE for the audio, Enjoy!
