Rakim’s Reps Says Reunion With Eric B. Are ‘Completely False’
Someone played a cruel practical joke on us. Apparently, reports of an Eric B. & Rakim reunion tour happening in 2017 are “completely untrue” says Rakim’s manager.
Okayplayer was able to get in contact with 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.
However, Eric B. & Rakim's Twitter account is saying don't you believe it. The page posted several tweets reiterating that an Eric B. & Rakim tour is still happening in 2017. "You better believe the Eric B and Rakim reunion tour Ain't No Joke. No hoax. No myth. Don't misquote, we back!" reads one tweet.
At this point, we don't know who to believe. Hopefully, the rap legends will connect and eventually make an official announcement (preferably both of them on video).
