Breeze through melodies cause it's been a long time

from Rakim – When I'm Flowin Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Eric. B & Rakim broke up as a duo after the release of their last album Don’t Sweat The Technique and Rakim returned in 1997 (5 years later) with his first solo album The 18th Letter (the album that this track is on.)

Since it was a long time ago since people had heard Rakim it was only right for him to prove that he hasn’t lost his touch by seemlessly delivering potent rhymes.

A reference to another song off of the album It’s Been A Long Time and possibly a reference to one of his earlier tracks My Melody
