What song/album sparked your interest in hip hop?

What was the first song or album that you heard that really got you into hip hop?

I think I posted it here already, but the first song I heard that really encouraged me to explore more was Halftime by Nas. Up until I heard that track, I didn't have much more than a passing interest in hip hop - I enjoyed a few songs by the most famous artists (Jay-Z, Eminem, some Dr. Dre stuff), but I certainly was not in any way a massive hip hop fan. Three years on, it's by far my favourite genre of music and I completely credit Halftime with that.

What about youse? Links welcome!g.php

    The year was 1998.....i was 8 years old and Hip Hop was at its most versitile state.

    1998 i learned alot about Hip Hop and it was Jay-Z, DMX, and thier respect crews that got me into Hip Hop.

    1998 gave me Jay-Z, DMX, Hots Boys,Outkast, Mos Def, Lauryn Hill, Big Pun, Missy Elliot, Busta Rhymes, Mobb Deep, Nas , and Trick Daddy.

    Ruff Ryders, RocAFella, Cash Money had a major influence on my generation.
