Not so much an Eric B. & Rakim concert, but a tribute celebration of the duo’s debut album release “Paid In Full” took place at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York yesterday. July 7th, was the 30th anniversary of the initial event.

With Eric B. as DJ, numerous artists attended on stage, or performed on the night including: EPMD, Fat Joe, B-Fats, Lovebug Starski, Joeski Love, Sweet Tee, Roxanne Shante, Ice-T, Flava Flav, T La Rock, Peter Gunz, Main Source, Maino, Mr. Cheeks, Special Ed & Ma$e. Also present at the Apollo were: DJ Kool Herc, Michael Bivins of New Edition/Bell Biv DeVoe, Ralph McDaniels of Video Music Box, Bumpy Knuckles & DJ Chuck Chillout amongst many others.

Rakim limited his appearances on stage to only 2. He did 5 tracks from the album: “My Melody”, “I Ain’t No Joke” I Know You Got Soul”, “Eric B. Is President” & of course “Paid In Full”.

Whether or not a recording re-union will take place between Eric B. & Rakim is unsure, but for now check out some footage of the show below:
