Announced via their Twitter account, here are the dates. These guys haven't toured together in over 20 years so I'm sure these tickets will sell out pretty quickly. Formed in 1986, they released 4 full-length albums:
  • Paid in Full (1987)
  • Follow the Leader (1988)
  • Let the Rhythm Hit 'Em (1990)
  • Don't Sweat the Technique (1992)
After an ugly label-related breakup, Eric B. Clarified with this statement; [quote]"The money got split 50 /50 from the door, because I remember people would try to keep shit going. When we first came out, people were saying 'Eric was getting all the money' and 'he was trying to shine more than Rakim,' but that's not true. [I] would go to all the interviews, [because] Rakim didn't want to go to the interviews. He didn't like that part of the business. [But] we split all the money from dime one. I don't care what money I spent in the past, that money is never coming back. Whatever money we made, we split 50/50. Even up until now, we split every dime 50/50.[/quote] Looking forward to seeing them out on the road again, and maybe this means new material? One can hope. They played a one-off reunion show last year, so this is a positive sign.
