20. Jeru the Damaja - The Sun Rises In the East

Jeru The Damaja’s debut album The Sun Rises In The East didn’t need to sell millions to be significant in the revival of East Coast rap. Along with the success of Nas and the Wu-Tang Clan a year prior, Jeru and Black Moon put the East back on the map. DJ Premier masterminded most of the beats that complimented the disjointed, yet calculated, nature of Jeru’s flow, creating a distinct sound that remains a cult classic with hip-hop heads today.
