The legendary Rakim remains very active, and even did a tour last year playing Paid In Full, his groundbreaking album with Eric B, but now Rakim and Eric B have announced that they're reuniting to celebrate the 1987 album's 30th anniversary.

It's the first time in over 20 years that they're performing together, and they're playing "one night only" at the historic Apollo Theatre on July 7. "The duo will be performing cuts from throughout their catalog and reveling in the moment with famous friends and fans old and new at what is sure to be one of the most historic moments of Hip-Hop Culture." Tickets go on sale Friday (6/23) at 10 AM.

Rakim is also playing the closing Brooklyn Hip Hop Fest concert on July 16 with DMX, The LOX, Stretch & Bobbito, OSHUN, and more.
