He is not the same age. He is actually a few years older. He is around 44 or so.
WELL HE LOOKS JUST LIKE HE SHOULD LOOK HE LOOKS LIKE HIS AGE. SLOW DAY MTO HUH I THINK YALL SHOULD JUST TAKE THE END OF THE WEEK OFF AND START FRESH ON MONDAY
I know 40 yr olds who look like there in there 20's ,drugs and drinking makes you
I know some 23 yr olds that look worse.
whatever!! she's just talking... LMAO -- Ya'll always gotta take it to the next level!
the true king of hip hop...he said...I'LL TAKE 7 MCs & PUT EM IN A LINE & THEN ADD
7 MORE BROTHAS WHO THINK THEY CAN RHYME..IT'LL TAKE 7 MORE BEFORE I GO FOR
MINES...NOW THAT 21 MCs ATE UP AT THE SAME TIME!!!
he look like he in his 70s wtf happened to you ***
Fuxck All That...Bet He Can Still Out Rap 90%Of The Industry Today!
Ok and what's the problem?
Who gives a ***.....his lyrical content would kill the so called "best in the game"....and to be honest I think he's older than Jay
How u gonna dis tha God!!..Love Rakim!!!!
Wow...he looks old!
Rakim looks perfectly alright and his skills are still on point. Way better than these thousands of bummy *** twitter rappers!
"Black don't crack" nonsense doesn't mean we don't age. He looks no different than any older person I've seen. Wait to you hit your forties. Talk about a rude awakening.
see what happens wen you party to much boys and girls......jus say no......lol
I LOVE YOU RAKIM!!!!!!
He looks the same to me. People do age, but at least he didn't get all fat and bloated like Jay.
he is not aging well at all but he is still one the baddest rappers to date. it's a shame the industry has almost dismissed real hip hop. love rakim.
he was nice lookin back in the day...but im nice lookin now so follow me on twitter!
MTO what are you talking about..To me he looks fine
he tow nahhhhh, lol
That hiphop lifestyles is a biotch. Thats what too much weed *** hoez get ya.
Rakim looks like he aged a little bit, but we all will eventually when we get old!
He don't look older than that pic of Fred you all put up. Foreal nobody looks older than that picture of Fred you all put up.
MTO, YOU MESSED UP ON THIS ONE.
He looks like a grandfather Omg
HE JUST OLDER AND HES AN 80'S RAPPER NOT JUST A 90'S RAPPER...
Uh, it's a little something called getting older; Something we all do. I don't know why you dimwits at MTO can't process that in your pea size brains.
No matter. I bet Rakim can still run circles around a lot of these so called rappers out now.
I Ain't No Joke! :D
First The 18th letter is much older than jay... and have you seen Jay???... No body better than the God MC
in that 3rd pic is it me or is that what snoop finna look like in a few years
Hey that's wat happens when u live the fastlife...too much drinkin, druggin, fckn and not restin will do u in like that...he looks like he is some1's gramps tho....probably is...but I do believe he is older than Jay-Z MTO..Jay-Z ugly *** came out in the 90's wit Hawaiian *** and small Fulton st jewelry
Get off tha gas MTO, prolly a few years older than Jay Z...
I got nothing bad to say about Rakim, he was so sick with it back in the day. He
will DEVOUR most of these so called MC's that are out now.
*** .........um everybody jus close ur laptop real slow and back way
Love Rakim!!! but He needs to think of master plan to age better
MTO YOU GUYS ARE EXTRA WACK...LMFAOOOOOOO
PEOPLE GET OLD... ITS CALLED LIFE....... LOLLL WACK WACK WACK
this is what happens when you smoke everyday,
I used to jam to Rakim's music back in the late 80s,he always looked mature even back them. Whodini,EPMD,LLCoolJ,Public Enemy,Kid *** Play,Kurtis Blow,Grandmaster Flash and Melle Mel,and The Sugarhill Gang used to be my fave male rappers! Rap music is not the same anymore these days.
He looks like he is on that stuff....Was great but now a has been.
He really didn't age well he look sick
*** mto......put up pictures of yo staff then run and pop off at the lips
Buddy Ugly ***!!!!!!!!
i know ppl are supposed to age, but he does look like he's in his 50s. he is well-kept tho.
MTO IS FULL OF ISH U COMPARE A 1980 PIC TO 2011 WTF DID U THINK HE WAS GONNA LOOK EXACTLY THE SAME THATS 31 YRS AGO...DUMMIES
Looks good to me ...
He's still one of the greatest emcees though. "Check Out My Melody" he was dropping knowledge like a scientist! ;)
Follow me on twitter @CupCakeDebb
OH HELL NAW.... I GOTTA LET MY MAMA SEE THIS SHE IS IN LOVE WITH THIS MAN.... AFTER A GLIMPSE OF THIS SHE WILL NO LONGER BE...
he still can rap tho.can't stay young forever
Is he sick too? Quite a lot of old school mc's are either coming up sick or dying
so ya'll MFers can't even respect a legend???
F*CK YOU AND YOUR ILLITERATE, FAT, UGLY AND FRUSTRATED STAFF!!!!
Sh*t, i'm German and my english is better than yours LMAOOOOOOO
Respect you making elders mto you people have nerve and about 4 working brain cells. Stfu!
LOL look at them chains from back in the day..... craziness!.....Don't know for
certain what Rakim has been doing but booze and drugs will take some years off
HE USE TO BE FINE. WHAT THE WORLD HE BEEN EATING AND DRINKING? HE DEFINITELY BEEN SMOKING. MAYBE HE'S SEEN A GHOST.
Looks fine 2 me. Youth isn't 4ever mto. Now if he woulda got procedures done, y'all woulda went in on that 2!! Smh it's funny how dis is a black site, cuz clearly brothers & sisters cnt win up in here!!!
He was sexy as *** on Truth Hurts' "So Contagious". was it really THAT LONG ago? Lol.
He looked older when he was younger..........
Jay-Z has the money to keep him partially younger looking...Rakim on the other hand probably no longer cares about his image b/c he is no longer in the limelight
He looks ok, point blank he a better rapper than Jay z
Love Rakim love his flow he's in my top five greatest rappers ever-
A legend right here!!! This is when hip hop was REAL!! MTO, its okay for him to be his age and look it, what about these young rappers that look like they bout to dang near get social security?
Dude probably don't eat much meat. All you young fools need to go to Youtube and do a search and see what real Hip-Hop is. Rakim was the best, and he barely cursed or used the *** word!
SOME PEOPLE DON'T AGE WELL
Jay z look old in the face too it's his swag and dressing that makes him look younger
look like he mighta been on that *** for a minute..In my Chris Brown voice, "lips blacka than a ***"
looks like a dude in his forties 2 me
Rakim is always going to be the man. Much respect!
Age is GONNA catch EVERYBODY!!!! Oh boi #FollowTheLeader!!! Still the best there ever was....
Rakim is a little older than Jay-Z. MTO get your sh*t right
Fred stop clowning Rakim. At least he did not have to clown or exploit his own people to make money. His was (and still is)just a good lyricist.
Looks ok to me, idiots.
COCAINE IS A HELL OF A *** *** DRUG
ppl he aged quickly c'mon, like some others said B4, 2 much drinking, smoking & some mo mess, no doubt about his talent greaat!!!! but some ppl his age looks reaaaallly good, he's just burnt out & he abt 2ft tall haaaaa, so the drinking definitely got him seriously ppl, even if he's 47 and Jay Z is 42, it's the way you live ur life
there are alot of peeps out there that are the same age, but one looks older than the other. he's had it harder than Jay so leave the man alone. still love Eric B and Rakim. they were the *** back in the day
not surprised at all...Rakim wz looking 49 20 yrs ago so y wouldn't he look like somebodies grandpa now
that"s the *** 18th letter right there! living legend do yall homework follow the leader,i know u got soul,the ryhme goes on etc etc i bet he will eat up 98% of these rappers out at his age NOW! (chi-hop)!
He was born January 28, 1968
probably only the chicago homie & fellow martial artist lupe fiasco & philadelphia"s cassidy the only "newer" cats that would have a chance i"m not counting jay-z or nas cause they been out 15 yrs plus (chi-hop)!
He is sexy in the top pic. Amazing rapper.
I think he is sick from something. I had heard that like a while back.
he looks the same to me
IDC how he looks, he's a living legend!
Best 5 rappers of all time
Big Daddy Kane
Honorable Mention Nas, Redman, Eminem, Raekwon, KRS One
@ ItReallyIsTooMuch you can lock me in a room :-) I'll karaoke some of his old songs.
@ topic that's what smoking Newports and Weed does to you.
Jay Z is 41.
He and Jay cannot be the same age. Anyway ain't nothing wrong with Rakim's looks.
LOL,HELL NAW! YALL FUNNY
***, the god looks like an old crossdresser...
He looks alright to me.I've seen a lot worst,I think he's in his mid to late 40's tho.
*** NO HE DID NOT AGE WELL...WHAT THE HELL HAPPEN
Rakim is beautiful GROWN man! There will never exist another rapper with his finesse, flow and originality. I'd still kiss the pinky ring of the "R"!!
MTO..Just leave the BEST RAPPER EVER on this planet alone.... thank you .
And btw he does look so fresh and so clean.
Dang...well I need to hurry and kick the newports! LOL (jk) he's Rakim...who cares how he ages!
I'm sorry but the point of mentioning JayZ was......? About nothin. He looks just how I expected him to, since we all age and our looks body change. I had a lil crush on him years back. As long as he aint on crack , I still just might let him mack lol
We all age as soon as we exit the womb that's a fact....These lil punk *** *** can't even hold a torch to Rakim venomous flows not even Camel-Z.
age gets us all
Rakim got a new track out, it's ahrite. What happend to his boy Eric B
They Money Way different from eachother ...Yall Dont think Rakim Stressed any over
Money You Know What stress does to your body..and Jay Z has B all the Time to
continue to make him look young.. He just looks like he ran across some hard times
and it got the best of him....
had to come back to this thread while watching nba draft waiting on my *** cause errybody that know me knows i love martial arts,basketball,football & music hip hop in particular case the name chi-hop chicago+ hip hop had to comment on eminem beating rakim? lmao rakim flow alone seals that deal! like i said outside nas & maybe jay-z? lupe fiasco & cassidy only ones got a *** (chi-hop)!
RealRoxxxanne flag as inappropriate/spam
EMINEM IS THE BEST MALE RAPPER! Put this Dude and Eminem will dust him! HA, HA!
White people and their FOLLOWERS the worst people alive, HA, HA!
Yo Chi-hop i'm on that draft too, and i'm from that Westside!!! yessir...

$50-1000 a week! no bs
Lamo @Chi-hop going in on Booz ol loud going to the hoop screaming foul and/or and 1, flagrant foul keeping Miami in those 2 games looking ***!!!
He looks great for someone in their 40's. He's not wrinkled, just a little damaged skin that needs
repair and what MisterMC pointed out.
1 of the HARDEST emcee's ever without all the cursing, whenever this dude rapped all i ever envisioned was Project buildings, and concrete!!!
so he chillin alongside jay z too, i swear hov signed rakim a few years back, rocafella *** g.o.o.d. music got the game on lock, all the best mc's in 1 label all of em, nas, rakim, jay z, kanye, common, mos def, talib kwali, *** who kno's, jaz o probably woulda been on the team if him *** jay aint have a falling out, and jay z endorsed ross when he drop, this ni@@a runs the game 4real
Jay is 42 and Rakim is 43...wow...big ***' difference!.
He been on that powder for a good minute now. Streets is talkin.
MTO, I know you arent known for credibility but ***!!!! Disrespect the GOD, that was an adult when Jay Z had just came out,and who ever covered this story was born probably; and needs to know the history of hip hop
He looks the same, just a little older. No difference in the weight.
rOXXXX, NEED TO WATCH THE gOD MAKE M&m EAT HIS MIKE. rAH is part of the OG rappers (melly mel, mc shan, audio2, big l)wat chall know 'bout dat ther???
b4 jayz's era....similac drinkin' dummies
How y'all gonna talk *** about Rakim???? and then disrespectful younguns on here co-sign on that ***? Worthless!
Rakim has earned respect. Y'all are trifling for this one.
