This could go down as one of the cruelest joke on hip hop fans.
Reports of an reunion tour with Eric B & Rakim in 2017 are “completely untrue” says Rakim’s manager.
The story from Okayplayer.com reached out to Rakim’s management and they have said there are no reunion plans in the works. Although there’s love between Eric B. and Ra, it looks like some things have to be worked out first before a reunion tour happens.
“It’s always a blessing to feel that love and support from the fans and I’m definitely going to be celebrating the 30th Anniversary of Paid in Full in 2017 even if I’m not sure how yet,” said Rakim through his management.
The confusion about what’s real and not remain as Eric B. & Rakim’s Twitter account is reiterating that an Eric B. & Rakim tour is still happening in 2017.
