Nas' 25 Favorite Albums

MC Shan, Down by Law (1987)

Label: Cold Chillin’/Warner Brothers

Nas: “That album changed my life. A big reason is because Shan is from Queensbridge. But still, his rap style, it helped me craft my rap style. The production with him and Marley opened my head to what I wanted to sound like, what I think I should sound like, and what I can potentially sound like.”
