Last year, Nas released his fifteenth studio album, Magic, via Mass Appeal Records. The record served as a follow-up for Nas’s highly-successful double release, King’s Disease and King’s Disease II, earning his first Grammy Award for Best Rap Album. The groundbreaking rapper actually surprised his fans with the release of Magic. The album was announced on December 23, 2021. Then on Christmas eve, Nas dropped the album, seemingly as a present to his fans who have been following him for 25 years. Nas, who just blessed hip-hop listeners with his highly-acclaimed 2020 album, King Disease, followed by King’s Disease II in 2021, proved that his work ethic is unmatched. For more than two decades, Nas has cemented his legacy with his outstanding efforts. His catalog of chart-topping releases demonstrates that he has more to offer than just his unprecedented 1994 debut album, Illmatic. And with eight number 1 records in the U.S., a Grammy Award, and multiple platinum certifications, Nas remains in his prime, even after 25 years.
One year before Nas released Illmatic, the Wu-Tang Clan released their debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers). The record, which was the quintessential East Coast rap album, had a raw underground hip-hop sound that resonated well with listeners. The unprecedented record entered the Top 50 of the Billboard 200 chart. By their sophomore album, Wu-Tang Forever, the group dominated the Billboard 200 and the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. With seven albums at their helm, the group became one of the most influential hip-hop groups of all time.
