Rakim and EPMD
WHEN: August 21, 3 p.m.
WHERE: Central Park SummerStage (69th Street and 5th Avenue)
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Paid in Full, the landmark album from Eric B. & Rakim. To anoint this, Rakim will give a free show as part of the Central Park SummerStage series. He'll be joined by EPMD and Funkmaster Flex, making this an even more significant occasion for golden era hip-hop. Don't sweat the technique, though.
