The greatest rapper ever to walk Planet Earth is coming to Charlotte along with his mind-bending DJ. OK, that’s debatable, even in the CL office. Our editor-in-chief is Rakim all the way; the news editor leans to Nas (who would likely agree with the EIC). But whatever your thoughts are on “greatest rappers,” no one can deny the dizzying genius of Eric Barrier and Rakim Allah’s classics: “Eric B. is President,” “Paid in Full,” “Microphone Fiend,” “In the Ghetto.” The pioneering duo’s reunion should not be missed.
