Eric B. (from "Eric B. and Rakim" and the show "Blue Bloods") stopped by the Lakehouse Music Academy's Block Party to talk a little about the North To Shore Festival. Eric B. and Rakim are performing at the Stone Pony on June 13, 2023, celebrating 50 years of hip-hop.

If you were at all awake in the late 1980s, then Paid in Full was well represented on the hip-hop mixtape you gave your friends. Perhaps better known as Mike Gee in the CBS show "Blue Bloods," anyone using samples in their music owes Eric B. a nod of respect as he pioneered the use of Soul music as samples.

North To Shore is a three-city, three-weekend festival celebrating all the talent, diversity, and creativity. Events will be taking place in Newark, Atlantic City, and Asbury Park.

Born from an existential argument between Modernists and Postmodernists, I have found my home with the post-punks and those who love a good slice of pizza. I live in a world of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction and the ever-elusive Decisive Moment. Punctum and Studium aside, I like to take photographs of people and things to see how they look photographed. While I miss both CBGBs and a cool place to bowl, Punk is still whatever we made it to be. The Future is Unwritten, and I owe it all to Mr. Bradley and Mr. Martin. Let Us Now Praise Famous Men and ask the Little Prince for his thoughts. Sometimes I'm On the Road, but if it weren’t for the honor of the thing, I’d rather walk. My loving wife supports this albatross of an obsession, and my kids put up with me well. BA, MFA, M.Ed., BCEA, Tri-X, and Nikon.
