Eric B. & Rakim - Paid In Full

Album: Paid in Full (4th & Broadway/Island, 1987)

One listen to Paid In Full and it's easy to realise where a great deal of modern day rappers from 50 Cent to Eminem pilfered their ideas from. Even though Paid in Full didn't shift a great deal of units it managed to inspire many MC's. Although i think the average Eminem fan may find Paid in Full a little to spartan for their tastes and i think Rakim's status is more of a rapper's rapper than a mainstream star.
