10 January ·. Follow the Leader - Eric B & Rakim. Album: Follow the Leader. Don't Sweat the Technique - Eric B. Album: Don't Sweat the Technique. In the Ghetto - Eric B & Rakim. Album: Let the Rhythm Hit 'Em. Year: 1990.
From this, Follow The Leader was born. This would be the follow-up to their previous release, with only 9 tracks upon official release (11 are on the album now), none of which are fillers, this album is short, sweet, and to the point. Let’s take a look at how both of these guys kill it on lyrics and production. The album starts off with the title track and first single from this album, Follow The Leader and of course it starts off with the familiar scratches (we would have heard on their first album). The beat incorporates an interesting, almost horror movie like instrumental, but works. Eric B and Rakim will forever be ranked as one of the top duos, if not THE BEST duo in the history of Hip Hop. They really perfected the craft and blessed us with it. – Porsha.
