Timeless, so age don't count in the booth
When your flow stay submerged in the fountain of youth
Although he’s an elder in the rap game, his spitting is just as vibrant as the artist half his age. His flow is forever fresh and young. Plus, we all know Ra created some of the craziest flows, and all the freshest rappers nowadays got a trace of his flows in their styles. So it’s pointless calling him old when his flow keeps popping up in all the young rappers' flows.
With this line Rakim may also be calling out rappers who have fallen off over time, saying that they shouldn’t use age as an excuse for not being good as they used to be.
