Eric B & Rakim Ready 'Complete Collection' Vinyl Box Set

Eric B & Rakim will reissue their entire catalog on vinyl for the first time with the pioneering rap duo’s The Complete Collection 1987-1992.

The 8-LP, 2-CD set collects the duo’s four albums – 1987s Paid in Full, 1988’s Follow the Leader, 1990’s Let the Rhythm Hit Em and 1992’s Don’t Sweat the Technique – as well as two discs worth of remixes, many of which will be made available digitally for the first time as part of The Complete Collection.

The Complete Collection 1987-1992, due out July 13th and available to preorder now, also comes with a 36-page deluxe booklet, the albums’ original liner notes, a ridged slipcase and more.

Nearly 25 years after the rapper and producer parted ways, Eric B & Rakim reunited in 2017 for a Paid in Full anniversary concert. The one-off reunion turned into a full-fledged tour in 2018, including a gig at the all-star Yo! MTV Raps concert in Brooklyn.
