"Rebel Without A Pause" Public Enemy, no-brainer," Nas said. "Eric B & Rakim 'Eric B Is President'. 'It Takes Two' Rob Bass and E-Z Rock. Rest In Peace, E-Z Rock ... 'La Di Da Di' Slick Rick" ... I'm going to go with "Sucka MCs" by Run DMC. That's one of the most important records ever and I can put "The Bridge" in there, MC Sham."

Who would you start your list with?
