1989: Freddie Foxxx releases his debut album Freddie Foxxx is Here
Long Island rapper Freddie Foxxx had already created underground buzz as a part of Supreme Force, a trio that matched him with Cool C and Easy E (to not be confused with N.W.A. rapper Eazy-E). Foxxx recruited Eric B. to supply his debut album, however the pairing may have been much more fruitful. Eric B. had been looking for a collaborator and scheduled a gathering with Foxxx to debate the potential for a partnership, however Foxxx missed the assembly. As a outcome, Eric B. determined to work with Rakim, forming a duo that will go on to be probably the most influential in hip-hop historical past.
