We could debate who the best MC of all-time is for hours, days, probably even years. But regardless of who you think it is, one man helped pave the way for all of them, and his name is Rakim.

One half of the iconic hip-hop duo Eric B. & Rakim is back with new music for the first time in nearly a decade. Despite growing speculation that Eric B. and Rakim will return to the game soon, Rakim did drop a banger during a recent performance at the NPR Tiny Desk. Not only did he perform his NEW track, "King's Paradise," but he also brought back a few classics. Check out the performance below:

"King's Paradise" is part of the Luke Cage: Season Two soundtrack from the Netflix superhero series.
