Rakim

Year of Honor: 2012

The Long Island emcee rose to fame during the golden era of hip hop and has influenced a generation of rappers that hope to achieve the success and respect that Rakim has over the past 27 years.

There's no wonder why this "Paid In Full" lyricist has been named one of the greatest MCs of all time.
