Rakim, EPMD to Play Free Show in Central Park

Legendary hip-hop acts Rakim and EPMD will perform a free show in New York City this Sunday afternoon (August 21).

The show will be a celebration of the 25th anniversary of Eric B and Rakim’s classic debut album, Paid in Full, which launched the seminal MC’s career.

The free concert, which will take place at Central Park’s SummerStage, will also include a set by Hot 97’s own DJ Funkmaster Flex.

The show is slated to begin at 3 p.m., with doors opening one hour earlier. —Martin Spasov for XXL
