Old School Hip Hop Sundays – Erik B. and Rakim

June 22, 2008

Once again, Sunday is among us, and it’s time for the weekly spotlight. My counterpart is traveling for the next week, so I’ll be claiming full responsibility for the blog. If it sucks, then “ouch.”

Anyways, back to the topic at hand. I recently noticed that we haven’t given respect to one of the greatest duos: Erik B. and Rakim. If I ever need reminding of what hip hop was/is/should be, I flip on one of their songs. Apologies for not finding a legit music vid of “What’s on your mind;” it’s a great song to listen to on the subway. I think the second vid makes up for it.
