Description

Legendary hip-hop duo Eric B. & Rakim first formed in Long Island, NY, in 1985. The premier DJ/MC team, not only was their chemistry superb, but individually, each represented the absolute state of the art in their respective skills. Between 1987 and 1992, they released four acclaimed albums, the platinum-selling Paid In Full (1987), Follow The Leader (1988), Let The Rhythm Hit ‘Em (1990) and Don't Sweat The Technique (1992).

Paid In Full caused a stir in the hip-hop music world due to its novel sound, approach, and subject matter. Their songs were the first to really impart hip-hop music lyrics with a serious poetic device sensibility while their gritty, heavy, and dark beats, marked the beginning of heavy sampling in hip-hop records. As a disc jockey, Eric B. reinstated the art of live turntable mixing and his soul-filled sampling became influential in future hip hop production. The dynamic duo's relentless rhymes and impeccable production continued to reign supreme through to their third golden age of hip-hop release, Let the Rhythm Hit 'Em which yielded the trio of singles "In the Ghetto," "Let The Rhythm Hit 'Em" and "Mahogany."

Eric B. & Rakim
reunited in 2017 for a string of one-off shows commemorating the 30th anniversary of Paid in Full. In 2018 they will undertake their first major tour together since their initial break up in 1993.
