Public Enemy, It Takes A Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back (1988)

Label: Def Jam

Nas: “It was something like I’ve never heard before. Chuck D’s voice and what he was saying made me think. Flava Flav’s voice, his attitude, and how he supported Chuck [was dope]. And the beats by the Bomb Squad were out of this world. Public Enemy took a strong position as a leader in the music community. They were brave.”
