Microphone Fiend

Eric B. & Rakim

The way that drug addicts feel about drugs, that’s how Rakim feels about rapping

And extended metaphors

This was the second single released from Follow the Leader.

Eric B. samples Average White Band’s “School Boy Crush”

It was featured in the soundtrack of the 2001 movie Freddy Got Fingered

This song was later sampled by Nas on his debut single, Halftime, from his critically acclaimed album, Illmatic.
