Legendary rapper Rakim recently announced that he'd play his iconic 1987 album Paid In Full in NYC at BB King's on July 13. That show has since sold out, but he added a second Paid In Full show happening at the same venue (7/12) a day earlier. Tickets for that show are on sale now.

He also has tour dates in other cities (some are Paid In Full shows, some aren't). That includes two shows just outside of NYC. He plays Long Island's Emporium on April 8 with fellow hip hop legends Slick Rick and Big Daddy Kane (tickets), and that one's not a full album show. He then does Paid In Full in Monclair, NJ at Wellmont Theatre on July 8. Tickets for that one are currently on Live Nation presale (password: HITMAKER) with a general sale starting Friday (3/25) at 10 AM.
