Wayback Wednesday | 90s Hip-Hop and R&B

Music is by far the best way to let everything go and live in the moment… or back in time. Back when life was less stressful, more fun, and before all the recent chaos. Each week, I’m going to take you on a journey back into time where I’ll feature my Top 20 anthems from a specific music genre. Buckle up and enjoy the ride!

This week’s #WaybackWednesday features some of my favorite wayback Hip-Hop and R&B jams of the 90s. LL Cool J popularized the Kangol hat, Biggie, Tupac, Nas, Aaliyah and virtually every Hip-Hop and R&B artist you can think of all wore Timberland boots. Over-sized white tees and denim overalls (with one or both straps down) were cool and trendy. Tommy Hilfiger, Nautica and Ralph Lauren’s Polo Sport were leading brands and Starter led the way with their popular NFL, NBA, and NHL jackets and hats. Paisley-patterned bandannas were stylish, camo was no longer only military apparel, and Air Jordan’s were a hot commodity. What we gonna do right here is go back, wayyyy back, back into time.
