Definitive Records asks interesting folks to pick the three albums that anchor their musical tastes. Today we hear from Clement Chan, the culinary master behind Torafuku and the food truck Le Tigre.

Wu-Tang Clan – Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) | LISTEN | “I grew up loving old martial art and kung-fu movies; so when I heard the album, it blew my mind. They were basing classic martial arts clips combined with heavy beat and soul music samples. I couldn’t stop cranking this album. This was a true blueprint of hip hop during the 90’s.”

Lauryn Hill – The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill | LISTEN | “This was her debut solo album after her former group Fugees. This album was the bomb. She incorporated styles of many genres such as R&B, hip hop, soul, and reggae, showing her versatility. It didn’t matter what kind a mood I was in, it always hit the spot.”

Michael Jackson – Thriller | LISTEN | “It was before my time, but the album was so sick. I stole it from my mom. It’s Michael Jackson, the King of Pop! What’s not to like? Besides the crazy music videos of the timeless dance moves, he had innovative songs combined with a distinctive voice and very catchy lyrics. Unforgettable. We play songs from this album in the restaurant all the time.”
