About this item
Lil Static continue to bring the noise, following up hot recuts of Kraftwerk, Biggie and Nas with a fine repress of the debut single from GOAT MC Rakim and DJ hero Eric B. Originally dropping as a 12" on Zakia before landing on their "Paid In Full" LP, "Eric B Is President" sees Rakim work his lyrical magic over the top of a sampledelic beat constructed from snippets of James Brown, The Mohawks and Mountain, whose "Long Red" appears on the flipside here in edited form. If you're after frazzled guitar riffs, rock heft and big breaks, I'd suggest you wrap your ears around the B-side here.
