Nas is one of the most prolific and influential rappers to come out of the East Coast hip-hop scene. The New York native is known for his groundbreaking debut album, Illmatic, released in 1994. Before its release, the New York rap scene was lagging behind the success of West Coast rappers, such as Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill, and Tupac. However, upon the release of Illmatic, hip-hop listeners started to look over to the East. The album has arguably been regarded as the greatest hip-hop album of all time by critics and listeners. Illmatic, which peaked at number 12 on the 200 Billboard chart, spawned the timeless rap classics “Halftime,” “It Ain’t Hard to Tell,” “Life’s A Bitch,” “The World is Yours,” and “One Love.”
Before Nas’s debut, some accomplished New York rappers paved the way with their monumental releases. For instance, Wu-Tang Clan has released the enigmatic debut album Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). Despite their raw, underground style, the multi-platinum-selling group resonated well with listeners, which led to the album debuting at number 8 on Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and number 41 on the Billboard 200 charts. The Wu-Tang Clan consists of accomplished rappers who also have successful solo careers, such as RZA, GZA, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Ghostface Killah, Method Man, Raekwon, Masta Killa, and Cappadonna.
