Wu Tang Clan - Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) (1993)
Wu Tang’s 36 Chambers will forever go down as one of the most solid debuts in hip hop history. This album was huge for East Coast rap, and many regard it as the the blueprint for rap music. It was produced RZA who was behind the success of a number of Wu Tang records as well as several solo albums that came from the group. Commercially, this record was highly successful despite being quite underground at the time of its release. This is no doubt one the best albums in hip hop, period, with some banging tracks including "C.R.E.A.M." and "Protect Ya Neck".
