When Terence Trent D’Arby’s debut was released in 1987, it was a sensation. He was very sure of his own self and thought his debut was pure genius. How does it hold up in 2017?

Eric B. & Rakim’s Paid In Full has been a hip-hop classic for 30 years. An essential link in sampling and intelligent rap. A tribute!
