    Thriller was different to me. I listened to it, I hear “Beat It,” I hear “Billie Jean,” I’m like, “Who the fuck is this kid?” Seeing him on awards shows. He did the moonwalk. He had the fucking jacket, the glove, the shoes. I fell in love with that album, man.

  • Keith Sweat - Make It Last Forever
    Keith SweatMake It Last Forever

    That was the roaring Eighties, the late Eighties. Music was staring to grow, and you had all these talented people coming from different places, and when Keith Sweat came he made a mark. Big up, Keith Sweat. One of my favorites.

  • Lauryn Hill - The Miseduction Of Lauryn Hill
    Lauryn HillThe Miseduction Of Lauryn Hill

    You could listen to that album today and it still sounds like yesterday. It’s one of those albums that you listen to from beginning to end. I remember songs like “To Zion,” playing it for the first time, I’m like, “Yo, the beat is so crazy.”

  • Mary J. Blige - My Life
    Mary J. BligeMy Life

    I know dudes in prison that was like, “Yo, that album and Wu-Tang Clan’s album and your album got me through this whole prison term.” I’m talking about guys who went away and really did some time. That’s important, man. Music is supposed to touch souls and make you think about shit, and that album, My Life, was definitely one of those albums, for sure.

  • The Notorious B.I.G - Ready To Die
    The Notorious B.I.GReady To Die

    We knew Biggie was a star back then, off his first album. I’m a very good ear when it comes to who I feel got it. And he definitely had it on that album.

  • Wu-Tang Clan - Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)
    Wu-Tang ClanEnter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)

    I knew we had made a classic before the world knew it. It was a mission accomplished with that one. RZA brought a new sound to the table; he showed the world that every track doesn’t have to be regular.

  • Boogie Down Productions - Criminal Minded
    Boogie Down ProductionsCriminal Minded

    KRS-One was a lyrical professor and a street talker. Songs like “South Bronx”  really meant a lot to us coming up in the game — and I’m talking about the street game, the hustle factor.

  • Eric B. & Rakim - Paid in Full
    Eric B. & RakimPaid in Full

    This is a special, special album to me. When Rakim first came out, I was about 15 years old. I saw him on the cover. He had outfits on there; they had money in their hand, jewelry. At that time, that was the way. Big gold chains and rings. Rakim was the trailblazer of that, besides guys like Just-Ice, Slick Rick, Run-DMC, Big Daddy Kane, LL. It was almost like a uniform for your favorite rappers.

  • Ghostface Killah - Supreme Clientele
    Ghostface KillahSupreme Clientele

    Me and Ghost, we’ve been each other’s favorite rapper since the Nineties. Ghost is a character within himself. He has a crazy charisma about him, and he took this album to the next level, lyrically. It’s Ghostface expressing himself to the masses, the way he wanted to.
