Rakim, Problem Kids and Art Official Perform at The Stage
Friday, December 7th
170 NE 38th Street
Hip Hop legend, Rakim is scheduled to perform after 9 p.m. Rakim began his career as the MC for rap duo Eric B. & Rakim. Eric B. & Rakim’s classic album, Paid In Full was named the greatest hip hop album of all time by MTV. Rakim himself was ranked #4 on MTV’s list of Greatest MCs of All Time. Rakim is universally acknowledged as one of the greatest MCs within the hip hop community. The editors of About.com ranked him #1 on their list of Top 50 MCs of Our Time. In 2012, The Source ranked him #1 on their list of Top 50 Lyricists of All Time. One thing is for sure; Rakim’s work set a platform for other progressive-minded MC’s to follow and helped ensure that East Coast rap would always be maintained as the center of innovative lyrical technique. In 2011, Eric B. & Rakim were nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The Stage is honored to welcome Rakim on December 7th!
