It ain’t no joke Eric B and Rakim’s Paid in Full 30 year Anniversary concert.

#CherryJuice: Paid in Full 30 year Anniversary concert.

On July 7, 2017 Eric B and Rakim’s classic album Paid in Full turned 30 and to celebrate they held a one time only concert at the Apollo Theater. The concert was the first time the duo appeared together on stage in over 20 years. The DJ and the rap God performed every song from the album from beginning to end. Paid in Full was a monumental album from the Golden age of rap, 1987 was the year the album dropped. Rappers recycle Rakim’s rhymes still to this day and producers chased the sound Eric B made famous on this album. The album holds a ton of classic singles like I ain’t no joke, My Melody, I know you got soul, and the infamous Eric B is President.

The concert didn’t only feature Eric B and Rakim, but a host of others EPMD, Maino, Ma$e, Roxane Shante, and Ice-T. Rakim usually tours solo performing the classic Paid in Full so having the pair come together was really a treat. Back in 2016 Eric B announced that him and Rakim would be touring together and reissuing The Paid in Full album but since that time no info or tour dates were given besides this one time performance at the Apollo Theater. 30 years is a huge feat and being able to see the legends perform together is monumental.

The younger generation may hear someone talking about Paid In Full and will automatically assume you’re talking about the movie starring Cam’Ron, take the time to listen ,or if you’re an older person reading this put them on to the classic, and even as a game recite some of the classic lines and point out how many artist have borrowed them. Legends never die, they just serve as a blueprint for the future.
