What an incredible time was had by all at this incredible meeting of the past, present and future of hip hop.  On a cloudy and sometimes rainy night in the grimy Apple, an MC who ranks #1 on many greatest rapper of all time lists, Rakim, and the seminal hip hop outfit, The Roots.  It has been quite a while since we first committed the entire “Paid in Full” album to memory but on this night, heads were clearly nodding as hard as they were back in the 80’s when this seminal album was first released.
