Eric B. & Rakim: B-Sides, Rarities & Remixes (Vol. 3)

B-Sides? Yes. Rarities? Yes. Remixes? Kinda. Volume Three is the first and only instrumental release in our Eric B. & Rakim series, featuring some great beats from classic tracks like "Juice (Know the Ledge)" and "Don't Sweat the Technique". But what we've mostly got here are instrumental versions of remixed tracks. For instance, we've got three "Casualties of Wars" beats from various remixes. All different, all worth checking out. To put the cherry on this cake, I've added the acapella to "I Know You Got Soul" -- which just so happens to be my favorite Eric B. & Rakim cut -- to close the set out. Hope you enjoy it and as always, turn it up!! (Vol. 4 and 5 are already in the pipeline...)
