Both the Wu-Tang Clan and Nas had been credited for reviving the East Coast rap sense in the early ‘90s. East Coast hip-hop utlizes complex lyrics and multi-syllable rhymes, which resonated well with many listeners. Wu-Tang Clan was one of the first artists to apply this musical style. They released their monumental debut album, Enter The Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) in 1993. The album has been hailed as one of the most influential and greatest records of all time. Enter the Wu-Tang had a raw, underground appeal, but still it entered the mainstream charts, peaking at number 41 on the US Billboard Countdown. In 1997, the Wu-Tang Clan released a follow-up album, Wu-Tang Forever, which debuted at number 1 on the Billboard 200 chart. The record earned multiple platinum certifications and a nomination for Best Rap Album at the 40th Annual Grammy Awards. Composed of Ghostface Killah, Method Man, RZA, GZA, Masta Killa, Inspectah Deck, U-God, Raekwon, and Cappadonna, the Wu-Tang Clan paved the way for other New York rappers, including Nas, Notorium B.I.G. Jay Z, and Mobb Deep.
Another East Coast artist, Nas, co-headlines the much-awaited event with the Wu-Tang Clan. The Grammy Award-winning rapper is credited for creating one of the most influential hip-hop records of all time. His debut album, Illmatic spawned massive hits, such as “The World Is Yours,” “It Ain’t Hard To Tell,” and “One Love.” Revered as the archetypal East Coast hip-hop record, Illmatic debuted at number 12 on the Billboard 200 Countdown and number 2 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums.
