“I Ain’t No Joke” by Eric B. & Rakim was released as the second single from their debut studio album Paid in Full.

Described as one of the album’s “monumental singles”, Michael Di Bella wrote in the All Music Guide to Rock that “Rakim grabs the listener by the throat and illustrates his mastery of the rhyming craft”. A music video was made for it, featuring dancing from Flavor Flav from Public Enemy.
