The legendary duo of Eric B. & Rakim took to Twitter to announce their comeback after 24 years since the release of their final album Don’t Sweat the Technique. Eric B.’s manager Louis “Uncle Louie” Gregory has officially confirmed they will embark on a 2017 tour. New material has not yet been announced, but apparently the duo is planning to remaster all four of their albums and release new music videos for some of their classic tracks.
The news comes as a surprise considering that during Red Bull Music Academy 2013, Rakim had closed the door for a reunion possibility by stating he didn’t like how Eric B. handled the “business” part of their relationship.
Check out their official Twitter account for updates and make sure to share the good news.
We are back.
