June 13, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm


2023 marks the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, with celebrations planned around the world to honor not just the music genre but the pioneers who paved the way.

Celebrate 50 Years of Hip Hop with a history-making moment when hip-hop legends Eric B & Rakim, hit the stage Tuesday, June 13th at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park.

The golden age hip hop duo, Eric B. & Rakim, first exploded onto the scene with the release of the iconic “Eric B. is President” in 1986. Their classic album Paid in Full, which sampled funk and soul-driven tracks, was monumental within the hip hop scene and was named the most excellent hip-hop album of all time by MTV. To this day, Eric B & Rakim remain one of the most iconic duos of hip-hop and are considered pioneers in the culture revered by today’s emcees for furthering hip-hop’s expansion with their unmatched definitive sound.
