Eric B. & Rakim’s classic album Paid in Full was named the greatest hip hop album of all time by MTV,5 while Rakim himself was ranked #4 on MTV’s list of the Greatest MCs of All Time.6 Steve Huey of Allmusic stated that “Rakim is near-universally acknowledged as one of the greatest MCs — perhaps the greatest — of all time within the hip-hop community.”7 The editors of About.com ranked him #1 on their list of the Top 50 MCs of Our Time (1987–2007).8 Rakim began his career as the emcee of the rap duo Eric B. & Rakim, who in 2011 were nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.9
