Watch how excited DMX gets when he meets legendary rapper Rakim for the first time. DMX even raps “Microphone Fiend” word for word.

Street Heat TV was on hand to catch a historic moment in hip-hop, two the best to ever do it meeting for the first time. You would think that DMX and Rakim being from the east coast would have brought them together long ago.

X has been in the studio with Swizz Beatz lately, working on new music. It would be awesome to see the two link up on a track together. As far back as Rakim's legacy dates back, I’ve always stated that his style of rapping is as current today as it was in the late 80’s and into the  early 90’s.

Check out DMX and Rakim’s chance meeting in the video above.
