It’s been 26 years since the 1987 release of Eric B and Rakim‘s debut album Paid in Full, a project that has been credited as a benchmark of Golden Age Hip Hop. And while the legendary duo may no longer make the music current hip hop aficionados crave, their influence on the game remains prevalent today.
Recently, we had the honor and privilege to sit down with Eric B, who broke down the business of hip hop for us and offered a few very valuable pieces of advice for up and coming artists and producers. Throughout the interview, Eric emphasizes how important it is to be in control of your brand, and to understand all aspects of the game.
