Part 1 of 2: UGHH's Van Stylez meets up with the G-O-D Rakim at Rock The Bells 2007. Rakim talks about his decision to leave Aftermath Records rather than fit into Dr. Dre's violent formula for success, saying "Dre wanted me to bring the guns back out and get real ugly." Stylez inquires about the track "After You Die" originally featuring Rakim, but re-recorded with Busta Rhymes after Rakim left the label. The theme of this interview? Follow the leader. Rakim sets an example by not compromising his morals for money.

Comment: Godfather for sure but not God. I do respect the artist for what he did, no doubt! but would he have read one verse of the holy Koran, he'd know calling himself Allah is simply the biggest blasphemy possible!!! People (especially in Hip Hop) use the word 'God' so loosely, it's amazing. To the 5%er: "You don't need to call yourself God learn self-respect!" and by the way let's get the facts right the 5%ers are most likely about 0.0001% of the world's Muslim population. Salam aleikum
