One of our favourite LPs of all time. Any Hip-Hop fan (passive or pasisonate) needs to own all the Eric B and Rakim back catalgoue.
On their fourth and final LP, Eric B. & Rakim left the stage with one of their most eloquent and soulful performances. Don’t Sweat The Technique combined the strutting jazzy hip-hop style that the pair had patented from Paid In Full-onwards with impassioned bars that took in everything from the Gulf War to New York City’s crack epidemic. Originally released in 1992, the album now gets a double-LP reissue on Universal.
