There can only be one.
Every hip-hop fan is probably familiar with the names Eric B & Rakim, who have more than earned legend status in the game. Younger fans might remember when Rakim had a brief stint on Dr. Dre's Aftermath records, although little official music really came of it. Regardless, their names still carry weight, and the duo have been recently displeased with RNB artist Eric Bellinger.
The reason? The title of Bellinger's latest mixtape, Eric B. For President: Term 2. Because when it comes to Eric B, there can only be one.
Eric B & Rakim fired a few tweets at Bellinger, calling him a clown and belittling his latest project. They even made one their pinned tweet. Check the barrage below:
Where do @EricBellinger get off calling himself Eric B & his record Eric B for President? Nothing sacred anymore? Unacceptable Disgraceful— Eric B and Rakim™ (@EricBandRakim) May 7, 2017
What do ya'll think? Do the OGs have a point? Or is there enough room for another Eric B to navigate the game?
