Eric B and Rakim are a hip-hop duo that began rapping in the mid 80’s.
In 1987 the duo’s album “Paid In Full” changed the hip-hop game.
During an interview with Revolt, Eric B spoke about how Nas pushed him and Rakim.
At a studio they were listening to Nas, how strong his flow was and at that time they were barely going to the studio or coming in very late.
Eric B said, “We were just fooling around and not finishing the records, and I remember Nas coming out and being so strong.”
That was the day they changed up what they were doing and it was because of how Nas inspired them to do better.
