      An all-time Hip Hop classic, critically acclaimed, and one of the best albums of the genre.

      A production masterclass from Large Professor, and the debut of Nas.

      It remains a prime example of a classically styled hip-hop LP - two DJs, one MC, 11 tracks, no flab or filler. It wasn't a slow burner - it was adored on release and hasn't left the top ten of any serious rap fan ever since.
