After much speculation and rumor for months, the man many call The God MC's management and label officially confirm that hip hop MC Rakim Allah will release his long awaited new album The Seventh Seal on November 17, 2009. Guest artists include hip hop notables Busta Rhymes, Jadakiss, Maino, Tracey Horton, IQ, Styles P, and others, including Destiny Griffin, Rakim's own daughter.
