Hot! Rakim Is Recording With Pharrell

According to a story in the Detroit News, hip hop legend Rakim is recording new material with superproducer Pharrell Williams. Ra is currently touring for the 25th anniversary of he and his former partner Eric B.’s classic 1987 debut Paid In Full.

It is being reported that Rakim is working on new material with Williams and hopes to have a single out by the end of the year. The album is slated to follow sometime in 2013.

Rakim himself didn’t speak about the future project, but acknowledged that his new approach is building on his classic approach.

“I definitely want to showcase that album, as a tribute to that the fans that love it,” he says. “Hopefully we can kind of rebuild that energy we had back then and bring it back.”
