5.0 out of 5 stars Great moment in Hip Hop, 23 Sep 2005
By 
James the King (...under the stairs) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Let the Rhythm Hit 'Em (Audio CD)
This LP represents a truly great moment in Hip Hop. Eric B & Rakim are to Hip-Hop what George Clinton is to funk, and this is them at their finest. Eric B's production was so ahead of its time when this LP was released, and Rakim will probably always be hailed as the most seminal of all MCs.

While I love all four Eric B & Rakim albums, I must confess that some of the tracks from their first two have not dated well and Rakim tries way too hard to be tough on most of the tracks from their fourth - although "Know the Ledge" is surely one of the greatest tracks in hip hop history. On this album they seemed to hit the perfect formula, and every track here remains flawless and timeless all these years later.

In today's dime-a-dozen marketplace of so called Hip-Hop artists, most so caled "heads" have little to know idea about the heritage of the bastardised popcorn released nowadays. This album would be a good place to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as the others.........., 26 Oct 2001
This review is from: Let the Rhythm Hit 'Em (Audio CD)
Since no one has written a review on this yet I feel compeled. This is just as good as the first two, obviously not as pioneering but who besides about 3 groups I can think of has constantly made good albums. Do I hear lyrics.....CHECK. Do I hear beats? CHECK. At the time it came out I feel Hip-Hop was going through a lul and this was an exception. Buy this one and complete the set every hiphead should have. Bye!
