30 Year Anniversary For Paid In Full

6tag_070717-165754

30 years ago today the album that truly changed the game in so many ways was released. To think during the recording process a rapper was laughing at The God as he track was being played back. The fact this almost didn’t happen if Eric B would have caught up with Bumpy Knuckles.

MCs had to really step their game up after this dropped. The great iconic James Brown career was resurrected with this album. The bars and vibe are the blueprint for every single MC that came after this, even EPMD was criticized for biting. The vibe was smooth operator/ deadly assassin. The lines from this album aren’t only still ahead of it’s time but have been used by most of the greatest MCs in the game at some point in their catalog.

Word is the duo have gotten back together. If all they do is just shows the culture will good for it. This was the Albert m that made me want to spit. The delivery was unheard of for that time. Everyone saying they’re are about this culture should know this album.

Marley Marl Recreates “Eric B. Is President”

Here is a true piece of Hip Hop history, “Eric B. Is President”. Marley Marl has a major hand in the making of the classic Paid In Full album, so much so it was out there that Marley and MC Shan joked on Rakim during the recording of “My Melody”, yeah I know… Rakim is considered the God of this Hip Hop shit and Shan is known as the dude who got ate the fuck up by KRS One. Anyway Marley Marl says he made the beat for “Eric B. Is President”. That is debatable but what isn’t is how creative the process was especially for back then. Hands down Marley Marl is the greatest to ever do it and this is why.
