Another hip hop project is in the works documenting the reunion of the Golden era’s dynamic duo, Eric B. and Rakim.
A concert film and documentary about Eric B. & Rakim’s historic reunion at the Apollo Theater is in the works, thanks to a collaboration between Russell Simmons and Talsa Media.
The show, which went down over the weekend in honor of the 30th anniversary of the duo’s first album Paid In Full, featured several major guest stars including: DJ Kool Herc, Ice-T, Mase, Flavor Flav, Fat Joe, EPMD, Slick Rick and more.
In a statement, the film’s executive producer Simmons said: “I’m thrilled that the world, and a new generation, will have the opportunity to witness the creative spark that Eric B. and Rakim lit in hip hop.”
“The duo moved the culture forward, and DJs and MCs to this day stand on their shoulders. I’m honored to work again with these great artists,” said Simmons, who signed the pair upon hearing them 30 years ago.
There’s no release date set for the film yet, see some of the footage from this epic reunion below.
