The classic sophomore LP from Eric B. & Rakim gets a nice double-vinyl reissue. Follow The Leader may not be quite as well known as the duo’s all-conquering debut Paid In Full, but this 1988 follow-up still has plenty to offer. Indeed, there’s a school of thought that says Follow The Leader is the better record. The manner in which Rakim’s bars dance over Eric B.’s endlessly listenable beats remains a joy all these years later. Golden-age boom-bap doesn’t get much better than this.
