About this item

The major label massive come through with something for the heads here, hooking us up with f-f-f-fresh reissues of Eric B & Rakim's four iconic studio albums. First in the series is the NYC duo's game-changing debut "Paid In Full", a perfect example of Eric B's break-fuelled, lo-fi beats and scratch prowess and Rakim's revolutionary flow. Though the mighty and mega title track may be the stand out track here (crossover classics don't come much better), the boombox fire of "I Ain't No Joke", slow and sludgy "My Melody" and neck-snapping groove of "I Know You Got Soul" would be standouts on any other record.
