Old School Mondays:: Giving Thanks for Rakim Edition

Happy Thanksgiving to those of you up here in Canada. I know the whole "Thanksgiving in October" thing usually confuses Americans, but it's essentially the same deal. We may not have the usually mediocre Dallas and Detroit-based NFL games on our Thanksgiving (speaking of thanks, I'm tremendously thankful for the Saints 4-0 start), but we have Turkey and pumpkin pie, and that's really what counts.

So, being a holiday, I hadn't planned on preparing an OSM this week, but the whole notion of giving thanks made me think I should post some songs from a golden ager that I'm thankful for. So I figured we might as well start with the best: the God. Rakim Allah might just be the best to ever do it, so I'm sure I'm far from being the only one who his thankful for his contribution to hip hop. So enjoy some songs from Ra's early career, and have a happy Thanksgiving.
