Grammy-Award-winning rapper and East Coast rap pioneer, Nas, rose to prominence in the ‘90s. He released his career-defining debut record, Illmatic, in 1994 and quickly broke into the mainstream chart. The album peaked at number 12 on the Billboard 200 and number 2 on the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. Regarded as one of hip-hop’s most influential albums of all time, Illmatic spawned several critically-acclaimed singles, like “The World is Yours,” “It Ain’t Hard to Tell,” and “One Love,” which featured renowned rapper/producer Q-Tip.
After his stellar debut, Nas went on to release his sophomore effort, It Was Written. The 1996 record topped the Billboard 200 and the R&B/Hip-Hop Albums charts. The album featured the massive hit “If I Ruled the World (Imagine That),” which featured R&b singer Lauryn Hill. It Was Written moved on to sell over three million copies in the U.S., earning triple platinum status.
The legendary hip-hop collective, the Wu-Tang Clan, remains among hip-hop’s most prolific performers. The group comprises nine original members (except Ol’ Dirty Bastard, who unfortunately passed away in 2004). The group’s claim to fame was their supposed underground-sounding debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). The debut album, which showcased a raw, explicit sound, became one of the landmark albums of East Coast rap. The record entered the Billboard 200’s Top 50 and peaked at number 8 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
