    1994 was a very important year for hip hop music. What 1969 was for psychedelic rock, or what 1977 was for disco, 1994 was for hip hop. It was an absolutely shaping year that prepared an underground art for mainstream explosion. Albums like Illmatic and Ready To Die spearheaded the movement, but albums by O.C., Warren G and Gang Starr also helped to sculp the scene.

Not to add fuel to a dead fire, but Jay Z's Volumes just weren't quite as strong as Nas' first four albums...let's face it.
