The Goat and his accomplice Eric B. released their third album 33 years ago today
On this day in 1990, DJ Eric B and hip-hop number one Mike Majin Rakim released the number 3 LP. let’s get into the rhythm.
Production on one of our most coveted Five Mic classics, Let The Rhythm Hit ‘Em, was kicked off by legendary boardman Paul C, but his untimely death left Button dead at the time. It was succeeded by a young disciple, the Large Professor. This was the basis that led to the extensive catalog that Extra P possesses today, even though neither of Paul C’s professors are credited on the album’s notes.
Songs such as the title track “Let The Rhythm Hit ‘Em” satisfied most of Ra’s lyrical critics who wanted R to reprise their debut album, Paid In Full. Tracks such as “Mahogany” prove Rakim’s storytelling abilities, while “In The Ghetto” reminds his fans and listeners of his origins of greatness and many other hip-hop artists like him. I was.
The album is undoubtedly a golden age time capsule, and The Source pays tribute to both Eric B. and Rakim for this timeless gem.
