Legendary Hip-Hop artist Rakim’s iconic album, Paid in Full  has garnered praise from outlets such as Rolling Stone, who has deemed it, “the greatest Hip-Hop album of all time.” Few artists have had as great an impact on the development of the genre as Rakim. Recognized as one of the “Masters of the Microphone” he first exploded onto the scene with the release of the iconic single, “Eric B. is President” which showcased his intricately intellectual lyrics.

SummerStage celebrates the acclaimed Hip-Hop brand, Lyricist Lounge. A respected part of Hip-Hop music and culture, Lyricist Lounge has hosted hundreds of live showcases featuring the best up and coming talent while acting as a career platform for many of today’s superstars.
