From the mind which is one of Allah's best designs
And mines'll stand the test of time, when I rhyme
Rakim claims that his mind is so powerful it’ll survive the test of time, through his rhymes.
Paid In Full, Rakim’s debut album (with Eric B.) dropped in 1987, and today, 25 years later, it is still considered a masterpiece, along with his other albums. It has thus survived the test of time, and will most likely continue to do so down the line. Rakim’s thoughts will still remain after decades, through his rhymes.
