Eric B. & Rakim - B-Sides, Rarities & Remixes (Vol. 1-3)

For the last post of the first ever Rakim Week, we have yet another compilation, this one coming to us from the Hip Hop Is Read Blog, which in 2009 put together three volumes' worth of Eric B. & Rakim B-Sides, Rarities & Remixes. The first two are just about all remixes, making the third volume (comprised almost entirely of instrumentals) the real gem of the series so far. I say "so far," because volumes four and five were supposedly in the works when the third was posted. Keep in mind this was almost six years ago, so it's unlikely they'll ever surface at this point, but hey, the comps were re-upped in 2013 and the blog is still active, so maybe if enough people drop a line they'll put the gears in motion again. I hope everyone has enjoyed Rakim Week. This will most likely become an annual tradition, so if there's something you think should have been included, please feel free to hit me up.

*UPDATE: dirt_dog over at the Philaflava forums was kind enough to extract the tracks from audiomack and re-post the comps in Zippyshare, so you can now download Volumes 1, 2 and 3 in addition to streaming them above.
