Rakim's flow and Eric B's productions created a very influencial hip hop classic album. Sampled and referenced alot since its inception ( YES that's Rakim's voice saying "Pump up the Volume! " in Marrs crossover global blockbuster ), THIS kind of hip hop brings to mind the importance of having a distinct style in a genre ( today many rappers and producers simply bleed into each other in a fog of undistictiveness, that is not the case here!). Tough-ed up, amped-up Soul funk and jazz breaks, all powered up with the electro-funk that reigned supreme in the 80s. Best of all perhaps are Rakim's rhymes, althought abstract, they still make sense to the everyman somehow. As far as rappers go, Rakim still remains one of the freshest, and his vocalization is hip hop itself personaified.

3rd LP (Side E/F) is purple spattered and not clear. Anyone else's like that? Or did I get the Wonka ticket?

To me, this is the best Hip Hop album of all times. Surely a classic record, this Eric B. & Rakim debut was both the pinnacle of Old School rap and the blueprint of a Golden Era New School album. Rakim basically invented flow, he comes with coolness but also strength, making him the true God MC. Every single track is an all-time classic, it is impossible to name the best one. This album, especially Rakim's flow and ahead-of-time lyrics, inspired later great Rap artist such as Nas, Guru and Big L. If you do not own it yet, and I suppose you do, then you should not waist any more lifetime by missing the best Hip Hop album ever, Eric B. & Rakims "Paid In Full"!

although one can't forget how important this record is/was for the development of rap/hip hop, listening to it right now over 25 later: eric b.'s skills don't sound that dope to me anymore. some of his scratches & production parts are crazy annoying - surely not a timeless record

Next to Mantronix-Music Madness LP this was yet another ground breaking album for that time.
