’90s-era Hip-Hop is generally considered “The Golden Age” of the genre, and for good reason.
As Questlove aptly told Pitchfork in 2016, “no period of Hip-Hop really contextualized and kept alive the music of the past and what came before it.”
“Nothin’ But A G Thang”, the seminal 1992 Dr. Dre/Snoop Dogg collaboration, would have to top any definitive list.
Then there’s Naughty by Nature’s 1993 smash “Hip Hop Hooray,” which spent one week at Number One on the US R&B charts:
Who can forget Wu-Tang Clan’s “C.R.E.A.M.,” voted by Rolling Stone as #11 on its list of “The 50 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs of All Time.”
The Champion hoodies. Black skullcaps. Timberlands. The group’s singular fashion style inspired an entire generation of aspiring homeboys.
Then there Modus Vivendi’s new “Hip Hop ’90s Sports Brief.”
It’s currently out of stock on International Jock, who describes the product as “inspired by classic ’90s street fashion.” So good luck getting your hands on a pair. (The equally ’90s jockstrap versions are still available, however.)
Apparently, it’s “fit for athletes, sportsmen, and streetwear fashionistas.”
So if you’re a huge hip-hop fan, you should probably swagger through the streets in a pair of these.
You’ll get mad props:
Like, mad props.
Eazy-E’s lookin’ at you, kid:
“And he’s coming this way…oooh…”
