“Paid in Full”-Eric B. & Rakim


One of the gems of the late 80’s “golden age” of hip-hop, “Paid in Full” is a song about something most fans of the genre can relate to- getting paid. The track itself is a playful ode to the business side of the rap game; a capitalist cypher which tackles an aspect of hip-hop often glamorized by well-off artists and bemoaned by starving producers.
