The song was produced by Eric B.
While some listeners can't be bothered to catch up on the timeless classics that helped mold hip-hop into what it is today, there are those of us who value the forefathers of the genre and their classic contributions.
And on the topic of flow, there is arguably nobody more impactful than Rakim, who proved that the possibilities for riding a beat were damn near limitless.
Together with Eric B, his ever-reliable partner behind the boards, Rakim helped inspire countless emcees to push their verbal dexterity to new heights.
On this day in 1992, Rakim and Eric B dropped off what would go on to be their final album as a duo, Don't Sweat The Technique.
A classic to be sure, there are many who feel that the title track remains one of the pair's definitive tracks.
It's certainly among their most popular, with millions of YouTube views celebrating Ra's effortless swagger and ahead-of-the-curve technique.
Taking to a frantic upright bassline, Ra makes it look easy as he strings together multisyllabic rhymes, territory that was only beginning to be charted.
"I'm also a sculpture, formed with structure," he spits.
"Cause of my culture, I'm equipped to construct the technical styles that'll be full of technology / Complete sights and new heights after I get deep." Rakim & Eric B.

Eric B.) Watch Video Lyrics.
[Hook] Don't sweat the technique Don't sweat the technique [Verse 1] Let's trace the hits and check the file Let's see who bit to detect the style I flip the script so they can't get foul At least not now, it'll take a while I change the pace to complete the beat I drop the bass 'til MCs get weak For every word they trace, it's a scar they keep 'Cause when I speak, they freak to sweat the technique I made my debut in '86 With a melody and a President's mix And now I stay on target and refuse to miss And I still make hits with beats Parties, clubs, in the cars and jeeps My underground sound vibrates the streets MCs wanna beef, then I play for keeps When they sweat the technique [Hook] Don't sweat the technique Don't sweat the technique [Verse 2] They wanna know how many rhymes have I ripped and wrecked But researchers never found all the pieces yet Scientists try to solve the context Philosophers are wondering what's next Pieces are took to labs to observe 'em They couldn't absorb 'em, they didn't deserve 'em My ideas are only for the audience's ears For my opponents, it might take years Pencils and pens are swords Letters put together from a key to chords I'm also a sculpture, formed with structure Because of my culture, I'm equipped to construct the Technical styles that'll be full of technology Complete sights and new heights after I get deep You don't have to speak just seek And peep the technique [Hook] Never sweat the technique [Verse 3] I speak indiscreet 'cause talk is cheap Then I get deep in the beat then complete the Poem's physique, never weak or obsolete They never grow old, techniques become antiques Better then something brand new 'cause it's real And in a while the style’ll have much more value Classical, too intelligent to be radical Masterful, never irrelevant, mathematical Here's some soothing souvenirs For all the years, you fought and sought the thoughts and ideas It's cool when you freak to the beat But don't sweat the technique [Hook] Never sweat the technique Don't sweat the technique Don't sweat the technique Don't Sweat The Technique
