Watch the Short Film ‘Words By Rakim’

From filmmaker Matt Bieler comes a short-form documentary that chronicles legendary emcee Rakim. Shot in a contrasting and atmospheric black-and-white, the film is “inspired by the vinyls that birthed the art form and is a portrait of two sides of an artist.” Relying on backstage footage and performance captures – and with re-worked music from Rakim – this one is not to be missed.
