The Last Shall Be First is the debut album by Sunz of Man, one of the most heralded early releases by Wu-Tang affiliates. Unlike the follow-up, Saviorz Day, The Last Shall Be First features all four members of the group, although Killah Priest only appears on five of the album’s songs because he was recording his solo debut Heavy Mental at the same time.
Production on the album was handled by the Wu-Elements (RZA, True Master and 4th Disciple) with additional contributions coming from Supreme Kourt and Wyclef Jean. The album itself is becoming very rare because Red Ant ceased operations, and it sold 350,000 units. Some pressings of the disc are black with the sun logo faintly visible and others are orange with the text and the sun logo clearly visible on the disc.
