Juvenile says Eric B. & Rakim’s “Paid in Full” was the first album he purchased.

Long before iTunes became the leading music retailer on the planet, people purchased cassette tapes, CDs, and vinyl from record stores.

Many people – rappers included – can pinpoint when and where they bought their first album and which artist they were willing to spend their money on.

XXL recently asked 14 rappers to list the first album they purchased.

From Hip Hop veterans like Bun B and Juvenile to newcomers like Dej Loaf, Logic and Iamsu!, each artist had a different experience.

The first album Bun B ever bought was Slick Rick’s The Great Adventures of Slick Rick. Dej Loaf purchased Da Band’s Too Hot For TV. Logic remembers buying The Roots’ Do You Want More?!!!??! and Juvenile says he bought Eric B. & Rakim’s Paid in Full.
