It's possible you may have missed the release of Rakim's new album "The Seventh Seal" because it completely fell under the radar somehow.  It quietly released a few weeks ago and the only reason why I knew it had dropped was because I happened to be in the new Hip Hop releases section in iTunes. 

If you haven't heard or bought the album yet, I recommend that you do so immediately.  It's by far one of the best Hip Hop albums of 2009 and it won't disappoint any true Rakim fan or Hip Hop head.  Ra brings the heat as usual and makes you forget about the Dr. Dre debacle or the fact that he has made us all wait a full decade for a new album.

Every track is bumpin' and you won't want to fast forward any tracks in fear of missing that next quotable from one of the G.O.A.T.'s.  It's one of those albums that you pop on for the first time and then immediately put it on repeat and listen to it all the way through again.  It's that hot!  To check out some more in depth reviews, click here, here or here (check the comments on this last one for the "real" review).

The track "Euphoria" isn't even on the album (although it should have been) but it's a perfect example of what you can expect to hear from a still hungry Rakim.  Jadakiss, Styles P and Busta definitely came hard as well.
