    Eric B. (D.J.) (1965- , born in Elmhurst, Queens - birth name is Louis Eric Barrier)

    Formed in New York
    Eric B. (D.J.)
    (1965- )
    Birth name is Louis Eric Barrier
    Rakim (Rapper)
    (1968- )
    Birth name is William Griffin, Jr.
    Releases included 'Paid In Full (1987),' 'Follow The Leader (1988),' 'Let The Rhythm Hit 'Em (1990),' and 'Don't Sweat The Technique (1992)'
    The pair broke up over the cliche' 'creative differences.'
    Eric B. started the trend of rap acts sampling the hell out of James Brown records.
    Their only mainstream Top Ten single was a guest spot on the Jody Watley song 'Friends' in 1989.
    The duo has been sampled by less than credible acts like Milli Vanilli and dance one hit wonder M/A/R/R/S.
    Just before stepping on stage for a show, Rakim was arrested for failing to pay child support. He was cleared of the charges a few days later (2004).
    The duo are considered hip-hop's premier M.C./D.J. team, praised for Rakim's smooth, intricate delivery and Eric B.'s elaborate soundscapes.
    Artists from Eminem to Wu Tang Clan acknowledge the partnership's advancement of rap as an art form.
    The group's single, 'Paid In Full,' featuring a snippet of Ofra Haza's 'Im Nin' Alu,' solidified their reputation as one rap's most creative artists.
