    There are several other Rakim songs that are pretty much equal.

    Nas - Star Wars

    It's not as good but it's still quality.

    For me up there is Outkast - "Millenium", De La Soul - "I Am I Be", Black Star - "Thieves In The Night" yeah that's a tight joint, one of the many great songs from mos and kweli, Rass Kass - "Reelishymn", there really is so many, but back to Canibus, yeah that song is genius and I love how the beat changes that and Cenior Studies are my fav. bis songs. peace

    Shit, what about Pharoahe on Hypnotical Gases?

    "But if I got one breath left
    I'll suck wind from the valley of death"

    Damn, that shit is fuckin' mind blowing!

    And Respiration, that song is so visual, I was bumpin' that today, I just lay in the dark and that song takes me places, it's fucking amazing.
    In the world I see, you're stalking elk through the damp canyon forest around the ruins of Rockefeller Center. You'll wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. You'll climb the wrist-thick kudzu vines that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down, you'll see tiny figures pounding corn, laying strips of venison on the empty carpool lane of some abandoned superhighway.

    Tough to say, its definitely a dope song and the verse (or epic) is amazing. However, Lyrics wise other tracks come to mind- Jedi mind- Genghis Khan (some dont like the raw, hardcore style but the verses by Jus Allah, Tragedy Khadafi and Vinnie Paz are all insane particularly Jus Allah), Canibus-100 Bars, Mobb Deep-Shook Ones
