The 18th Letter

by Rakim
The 18th Letter by Rakim
Released: Nov 1997
The 18th Letter unfolds like a hip-hop version of a Lewis Farrakhan tract: name-dropping biblical characters; discussing the superiority of the Asiatic black male; and drawing parallels between hieroglyphics and graffiti as well as the earth's rotation and that of a turntable. And this is just the first song.
