Artist: Rakim Allah
Album: The Seventh Seal
Label: Ra Records
Release Date: October 20, 2009 (tentative)

“Holy Are You” is the first single released from Rakim’s upcoming, highly anticipated album “The Seventh Seal”. The track was released on July 28th, giving hiphop heads a preview of the G.O.A.T.’s supreme lyrical gifts that will be blasted through speakers across the universe when the album officially drops. Rakim signed with Dr. Dre’s Aftermath label in 2001 with hopes that the two icons could create a classic that would transcend the test of eternity. However, they had creative differences and parted ways soon after. Rakim scrapped his work and started over, working for seven years on the album, knowing the due diligence needed to satisfy the quality of music that fans have come to expect of him. Judging by this first track, a foreseeable manifestation is The Lion of Judah bumpin’ the Seventh Seal in some headphones, and not breaking it as the Book of Revelations foretells.
