One of the golden age of hip hop's most celebrated MC/DJ duos, Eric B. & Rakim burst onto the scene in 1986 with the release of their single “Eric B. is President”. This was swiftly followed by the release of the duo's debut album, Paid In Full, which leaped straight into the Top Ten on the US Billboard Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. A highly influential record in the world of hip hop, Paid In Full paved the way for 1988's Follow the Leader, 1990's Let the Rhythm Hit 'Em (also a Top Ten album) and Don't Sweat the Technique (1992). After Don't Sweat the Technique, the duo disbanded and both parties went on to release solo albums. In 2016, after a 23-year hiatus, it was confirmed the Eric B. and Rakim would be reforming as a duo, and their first reunion concert was held at the Apollo Theater in New York City on July 7, 2017.
