Listening to Life's a Bitch right now...unreal verses from AZ and Nas both, plus the trumpet solo at the end

No, but it's a truly great record.

And this is coming from someone who generally doesn't care for rap.

That list is mostly a mixture of albums I like and popular opinion, but you get the idea.

To me the mark of a perfect debut album is the one that shows the most promise for the band that is coming out...that gives a hint of the brilliance that will come in subsequent releases.

So, in that context, Yo! Bumrush The Show is the greatest rap debut of all time. Hands down.


I would put Illmatic in my top 5-10 rap debuts tho, most definitely
