First impressions are everything and few have greater impact than a hip-hop artist’s debut album.

Part of the reason why rap debuts are so revered is because they present the first opportunity to judge an artist’s singular body of work. But there’s also an unspoken pressure here. Historically, so many rap debuts are so damn good, and anyone looking to make their first foray into a career within the genre has a lot to live up to.

Whether it’s Dr. Dre changing the sound of hip-hop production with The Chronic or Clipse ushering in a new era of urgent lyricism on Lord Willin’ two decades later, time has shown that many do, in fact, live up to these pressures. A rapper’s initial offering can often have a massive influence on subsequent releases, and culture in general.

Sometimes that first album is the most significant of an artist’s career.

If it seems like the scales of appreciation are tipped in favor of debuts, it’s because they are. There’s a reason why Jay-Z calls Reasonable Doubt his “baby.” There’s a reason why Raekwon still can’t escape the shadow of Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. Rappers essentially have their entire lives to make their first album, and it shows—in some releases more than others.

We decided to get to the bottom of the never-ending discussion about rap’s greatest debuts. It was tough, like any list of this scope, but we got it down to 50 surefire classics, from past and present, and we’ve ranked them as well.

Is Illmatic No. 1? Which artists who dropped their first LP in the past decade made the cut? Read on to find out all of that, and more. These are The 50 Greatest Debut Albums in Hip-Hop History.

Gasface is back with Think B.I.G., their new mini-series documenting some of the Hip-Hop’s most notable people who have impacted the culture. In their second episode, they talk to legendary producer Alchemist, as he drops knowledge and speaks on the journey of his career up to this point. He shares some advice that was given to him by his father about how rich people appear to dress usually and says old folks that try hard to remain relevant (via their kids) are the most disgusting people in life.

He emphasizes that he is inspired to make beats by whatever he’s going through at the moment, not what’s “hot” out in the streets, in terms of music. He also tells a tour story from back in the day and how he named his company Quiet Money.
