Performer Notes
  • Eric B. & Rakim: Rakim (rap); Eric B. (scratches).
  • Additional personnel: Stevie Blass Griffin (various instruments).
  • Recorded at Power Play Studio, New York.
  • Personnel: Eric B., Rakim.
  • New York team who met in 1985 and have gone on to become an important duo in Rap's short history. Their debut album, PAID IN FULL, caused great legal waves via its explicit use of samples (Eric B is often credited with putting the funk back into rap music via his James Brown signatures). Rakim was responsible for introducing a more relaxed, intuitive delivery which was a distinct advance on the thumping bravado of Run DMC and LL Cool J, and is best sampled on this influential and instructive album. The title track, "Lyrics Of Fury" and "Microphone Fiend" provided the fullest possible evidence of the duo's skill.

What can I say about this album - except, get it if you haven't already ! This is the 2nd classic album in 2 years for HipHop's greatest duo (in '87 they released Paid In Full). MC Rakim has the perfect voice for rapping and DJ Eric B uses unusual samples not being used by anyone else at the time. The title track is personal favorite - the lyrics (bravado in full effect !) and the beats - sublime (I hear something new in this track just about every time I listen to it). Best tracks -
