Rap pioneers and forefathers of flow, Eric B. and Rakim along with special guest Yo-Yo harness the funk and soul of ’80s New York hip-hop in The Technique Tour coming to House of Blues Las Vegas on Saturday, April 28. Show starts at 9 PM.
Tickets for Eric B. and Rakim go on sale Friday, March 9!
When the duo first got together in 1985, Eric B. and Rakim began the formation of one of the greatest and most influential DJ and MC teams in the history of the craft. Putting together a master beat sampler and an incomparably poetic lyricist resulted in rap’s evolution from boisterous schoolyard rhyme schemes to elaborate poetry, complete with internal rhymes and metaphors that captivate any audience.
Eric B.’s ability to put together beats that harness all the funk, soul, and grittiness of ’80s New York put him miles ahead of his contemporaries. Rakim’s unprecedented style of rapping focuses on the flow and syncopation of lyrics that undoubtedly changed the game of rap for all who followed. Their break out hit single “Eric B. is President” put the duo on the map, but their debut album Paid in Full that not only made it to the US Billboard Top Ten R&B/ Hip-Hop List, it cemented their place in hip-hop history as some of the greatest artists of all time.
