Eric B & Rakim, "Follow The Leader" (1988)

Guess who’s back! In 2011, The Source ranked Rakim as the #1 Lyrical Leader on their list of the 50 greatest rappers, above Nas and Biggie and Jay-Z and, you know, every other hip-hop MC ever. Best known as half of Eric B. & Rakim, the Sprite enthusiast heads to town for a nineties nostalgia fest that also features Mr. Cheeks, Les Nubian, Keith Murray, and 3X Dope. (“Funky Dividends!” I forgot that one.) Nostalgia package tours are something of a guilty pleasure, which is to say that they’re fun and also excellent for people-watching.

(Note: this event’s happening at Roxy, which is the same place as Lupo’s except the other half of the shared sign will be lit up.)
