Eric B. & Rakim - Paid In Full RIAA Certified Platinum! Click here to see this CD at!

By Mark Woodlief

Hip-hop has always been a puzzle, and the two-CD "platinum edition" of 1987's classic Paid in Full reestablishes one of the genre's key pieces in proper context by combining the original 10-song tour de force with a companion collection of important remixes. From Eric B.'s Technics terrorism and sampling symphonies to Rakim's soulful, street-smart flow, Paid in Full is landmark science, a Ph.D. effort building on the early theories of New York City legends like the Sugarhill Gang and Grandmaster Flash. By featuring 10 remixes--including Coldcut's "Seven Minutes of Madness" treatment of the title track and the Wild Bunch's "Move the Crowd"--The Platinum Edition also highlights the duo's influence on DJ and club culture beyond the B-boy set.

"All DJ's ( including myself) owe alot to the samples and mixes of original MC's like grandmaster flash and the sugarhill gang, not to mention the various sounds of New Yorks club/street culture. Microphone legends like Eric B & Rakim, Run DMC, Boogie Down Productions, LL cool J, and other talented artists have literally layed down the foundation for what we now call "hip hop culture", wich has dominated todays music industry. "Paid In Full" is one track that will never die out."
