INSPIRATION BEHIND THE ARTWORK:

William Michael Griffin Jr. (born January 28, 1968), known by his stage name Rakim, is an American rapper. One half of golden age hip hop duo Eric B. & Rakim, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential and most skilled MCs of all time.

Eric B. & Rakim’s classic album Paid in Full was named the greatest hip hop album of all time by MTV, while Rakim himself was ranked #4 on MTV’s list of the Greatest MCs of All Time. Steve Huey of Allmusic stated that “Rakim is near-universally acknowledged as one of the greatest MCs — perhaps the greatest — of all time within the hip-hop community.” The editors of About.com ranked him #1 on their list of the Top 50 MCs of Our Time (1987–2007). Rakim began his career as the emcee of the rap duo Eric B. & Rakim, who in 2011 were nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

    PBankole bought some of your work recently and left you a note regarding “HIP-HOP ICONS: RAKIM”:

    I truly believe that Rakim is the greatest MC of all time. The song “Follow The Leader” was 30 years ahead of it’s time. This is a great T Shirt. I can’t wait to rock it, on the streets of London… Thank You
