Eric B. & Rakim – Paid In Full (1987)

Eric B. & Rakim - Paid In Full

“Paid In Full” was selected to be the best album of all time by MTV. That’s how good it is! The record had to be finished in less than a week to complete it within budget. Rakim’s rapping pioneered the use of internal rhymes in Hip Hop. Unlike previous rappers as Run DMC who used to express their lyrics with high energy, Rakim changed the game with his rather relaxed and stoic delivery. Not to forget: The heavy sampling by Eric B. became influential in hip hop production.
