Rakim Allah, to most, is the very definition of hip hop. The rap legend, in his early work with Eric B, namely in their infamous album Paid in Full, pioneered the style, direction and innovation of modern rap music. Eric B and Rakim released the revolutionary Paid in Full in 1987, followed by three additional group albums, which continued to flip the rap game upside down.
After the group broke up in 1992 due to personal differences, Rakim went solo, releasing the classical album The 18th Letter, followed by The R. The microphone-fiending, MC-ripping Microphone Soloist Martian Rakim is currently recording an additional third solo album to add to his arsenal and continue redefining the rap game.
