Customer Review

on March 18, 2004
This album makes it onto so many "best of" lists and after listening to it it's not hard to tell why.
Whilst some Eric B's beats may not be as revolutionarily fresh as they were back in 1987, they still hold up. The James Brown sampled "I Ain't Know Joke" and title track "Paid in Full" are still as funky as the day they were cut (and, to be fair, I like the synthy sounds of the old-school tracks like "Move The Crowd" and "Eric B is President" anyway).
The main reason to buy this album, though is Rakim's emcee-ing ability. This album shows why he is rightly regarded as the greatest MC of all-time.
This album is the 2-disc platinum edition, meaning you also get the classic Coldcut remix of the title track (one of the best remixes ever, imho).
