BOULDER, CO – With the University of Colorado at Boulder back in session you know the Fox Theatres hip-hop shows will be jam-packed. Such was the case for Rakim at the Fox Theatre on Wednesday August 25, 2010. Rakim Fox Theatre played his entire album Paid in Full much to the delight of the young CU students. The crowd at the Fox was enthusiastic about hearing a historic hip-hop album played in Full. The only thing that would have made the night better was if Rakim’s former partner DJ Eric Barrier aka “Eric B” was on stage performing.
In our current I-Pod pop culture it’s interesting how a group of young students can still manage to find classic hip-hop albums. A positive sign that the classic music wont get lost and will be played for many more future generations.
During Rakim’s show on Wednesday night he brought out special guest comedian Charlie Murphy. Murphy was in town for his stand up routine at the Boulder Theater earlier in the evening. With the combination of classic hip-hop and raw comedy how can you go wrong?
