Rap Treats #67: Unreleased Eric B & Rakim (1996)

Personally ripped by me for you. This bootleg came out in 1996 and features Rakim's best unreleased material. It all sounds like it was supposed to be on the Don't Sweat the Technique album (which is rumoured to have been co-produced by Large Professor, can anybody corroborate that?) My cut on here is "Hypnotic", straight b boy badness but the whole record is > all rap 2001-present.

Also, I saw Biz Markie pick this up at BASSIX (r.i.p.) record store back when Biz first came to Vancouver in 1996.


Eric B & Rakim

A1 - Everything's Cool
A2 - Hypnotic
