Best Rakim Songs

Wow. It's just disappointing to see that Rakim doesn't have a list on here. Well I'm going to show him some love and create one. Quite possibly the best MC/rapper ever, what's your favorite Rakim song (solo or with Eric B.)?

1 When I B On Tha Mic

May not be "classic Rakim" but still is incredible and deserves #1.

Best Flow. #01 all the way.
