GMODT’s Music Monday Featuring Eric B. & Rakim

SI has “Monday Morning QB” with Peter King but LAS has Music Mondays with GMODT. One talks non stop about Starbucks and the other can’t get enough old school hip hop. Which is better? You decide.

Last time we met I picked some brand new hip-hop to start the week, but this time were turning the clock back to the late 80’s for some stone cold classic New York hip-hop.

DJ Eric B. and MC Rakim are considered one of the seminal duos of classic hip-hop, and Rakim is rightly singled out as probably one of the top 5 MC’s of all time. Their debut Paid In Full is hit or miss overall, but the singles are all excellent.

I’ve included all the singles off Paid In Full for your listening pleasure plus the remix of the title track which is arguably the most well known of their work. I’ll leave you with some sage advice from Rakim- “It’s not where your from, it’s where your at”.

"...ain't nuthin but sweat inside my hand."
