My personal favourite HipHop Band/Group of all time. This track talks about the decline of HipHop and the false lifestyles of rappers (Frontin and flossin). As usual BlackThought raps eloquently with thought provoking lyrics and the video mocks the rap videos that were slowing eroding the true principles of HipHop.

Heavy D. Boy, he sure could dance his ass off. Notice the absence of profanities in his songs and the natural looking ebony girls in the videos typifing that era. And of course, Chris Tucker was in this video.

Tupac Amaru Shakur - 2PAC. The greatest rapper/MC of all time.  His demise has not overshadowed his amazing body of work. One of the greatest posthumous selling artistes of all time. He is a poet, a prophet, a socially and politically conscious MC and some call him also a thug.

@ Vacora
Nice job you've done putting up all them back in the days videos. Its funny how time flies, cant believe its already 20 years now since i've been actively listening and collecting music. Gone are the days of MC Hammer and Bobby Brown grin In deed 1990 was a very good year,

By the way why isn't Ghetto Boys "My minds playing tricks on me" video not among your list. That was a classic back 1990.

T.R.O.Y by Pete Rock & Pete Rock. Pete Rock is a great DJ and producer. Back then it was vinyl and artistes looked like everyday people in their videos - no blings either. A tune that brings back memories growing up in Lagos and YO! MTV raps. My cousins and i used to risk life and limb, climbing a high concrete ladder to turn the cable dish so we could catch the programme smiley

These white boys could rap. This was way before Eminem. House of Pain - These American Irish lads deserve a place in hiphop history. Back then a friend of mine took his dad's car out for a drive(without permission of course tongue) and crashed it whilst jamming to this song. Memories. Play this in a pub and it is guaranteed to start a riot.

Puff Daddy aka Diddy had a great roll call of a artistes with the likes of B.I.G, Craig Mack, 112 and to others on his roster. MJB is the queen of r&B smiley
