Q by APP: Having been in the hip-hop game for as long as you have, how does it feel to have hip-hop at the point where a show like yours is at a venue like the New Jersey Performing Arts Center? There are symphony orchestras and ballets there, and now hip-hop is on that same cultural level with these other genres and institutions.

A by Rakim: Indeed man. It means a lot for the game of hip-hop. It shows that we've been through a lot of flack, as far as our lyrical content and what's going on in the game, but through the time we've shown that hip-hop is here to stay, it's influencing the world.

You can't get around today without hearing or seeing or being involved in some hip-hop, even just watching TV commercials or shows or if it's your everyday life. So, being able to do things like this validates what hip-hop is and what it means to everybody.
