Remember our first post on Rakaa?  Well, since then the former Dilated Peoples emcee has been further preparing for the release of his debut album “Crown of Thorns,” and another single has just been released titled “Delilah.” To create this masterful track, Rakaa teamed up with another Dilated Peoples member and current Rhymesayer Evidence who produced the track. It’s refreshing to hear a song in true Dilated spirit – “Deliliah” can join the ranks of timeless hip-hop classics. Also, if you like the single, be sure to check the video here.

Everybody loves Dilated Peoples. But who’s gonna love Rakaa? As one-third of the legendary West Coast group, Rakaa is currently fine-tuning a solo project, “Crown of Thorns,” due out on July 20th. There’s certainly a level of vulnerability involved in stepping out from the shared spotlight to become the main act, but Rakaa is making a smooth transition using several guest features to keep a bit of spontaneity in his new work. “Aces High” is the first single from “Crown of Thorns,” featuring a great deal of outsourced creativity: an Alchemist beat+ Fashawn, Evidence (fellow member of Dilated Peoples) and Dafari on the mic.
