Eric B. and Rakim

Perhaps, some of the most legendary Long Island emcees to ever touch a mic are Eric B. and Rakim. The duo has been noted as the most influential DJ/MC combo in music history, and for good reason. Eric B. was an early pioneer of music sampling and mixing, and Rakim has been referred to as a "God emcee" if that makes it easier to understand the influence that he's had on the game of hip hop.
