The ineffable Marley Marl recreates Eric B. Is President which was originally released in '86. In the O.G. sessions, Marl explains that Eric B was supposed to bring a special MC who ultimately never showed (rumors say that person was supposed to have been Freddie Foxx). Instead, the God Rakim Allah showed up and recorded My Melody. Eventually, the two recorded the classic Eric B. Is President. Up top, Marl recreates the legendary joint on his MPC Renaissance. Peace to ego trip.
