I Know You Got Soul

I was playing Spotify on shuffle when Erik B and Rakim’s, I Know You Got Soul, came on. The following verse is my favorite:

I start to think and then I sink
Into the paper like I was ink
When I’m writing, I’m trapped in between the lines
I escape when I finish the rhyme, I got soul

In these few lines, Rakim encapsulates how I feel when I write.
