Last week, Eric B. & Rakim’s groundbreaking album Paid in Full turned a full quarter-century old. Rakim’s smooth flow and staccato use of syllables layered over a soulful wrecking ball of samples made his storytelling and braggadocios boasting made for some of the most influential rap records ever committed to wax. Even the cover art set the tone for flashy empowerment in hip-hop imagery.

In the interest of hip-hop, we asked some of our favorite H2C2 MCs to drop some bars in celebration of this momentous occasion, and we encourage our readers to respond back with some rhymes of their own.
