Grammy Award-winning rapper Nas is regarded as one of the pioneers in East Coast rap. He has been credited for reviving the hip-hop scene in New York during the early ‘90s. In 1991, he made his recording debut when he performed some verses in Main Source’s “Live at the Barbeque.” Three years passed, and Nas finally dropped his debut album, Illmatic. The record received universal acclaim from professional music critics. Debuting at number 12 on the Billboard 200, Illmatic has been regarded as one of the most influential rap albums of all time. Since his debut record, Nas has enjoyed stellar success throughout his three-decade career. He has released thirteen more albums and sold over 25 million records worldwide. His 2020 album, King’s Disease, earned him his first Grammy Award for Best Rap Album.
Fellow New York Natives Wu-Tang Clan also played a role in reviving the rap scene in the city. Composed of Ghostface Killah, Method Man, RZA, GZA, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Raekwon, and Cappadonna, Wu-Tang Clan consists of members who have distinguished solo careers.
