Hit the Earth like a comet – invasion!
In hindsight, of course, nobody can doubt Nas' impact.
- Mulitiple producers (some argue this wasn’t a good thing!)
- How Illmatic reoriented rap towards gritty East Coast — sounds, and away from West Coast gangster stylings.
- How Biggie stole the concept of his album cover.
- How he got AZ a record deal with one guest verse.
- How he was the first guest artist on a Wu-Tang track.
- How he was one of the first practitioners of mafioso rap.
The “invasion!” in this line would later become the tag for DJ Green Lantern’s Invasion mixtape series for Eminem’s Shady Records
