So here I was in Vegas last week atop the Rio at VooDoo Cafe and the DJ was spinning some great music...it was all stuff we jammed to in high school and college back in the 1990s. While I can't remember every song played, I got the itch to update my IPOD with some of these songs.

What were some of your favorite songs (regardless of genre) from this era? Post Away...

Hopefully The Bad Guy will chime in with his stacks of wax...

I may be a silly little white kid, but I was really into 2Pac. I really liked every album of his (except for the first one). I even liked the 15 or so post-mortem "let's cut a song for every unused lyric track" albums

Ice Cube's "It Was a Good Day" is one of the greatest pieces of art from the last quarter of the 20th century.

For me, it's a lot of fun going to the iTunes Music Store and looking at the top 100 charts they have for each year dating way back. It's fun going back to my high school and college years and seeing what was popular back then. A ton of one hit wonders...

Very much agreed. I love early Ice Cube circa 1991-92

OutKast, Dr Dre, Snoop Doog, Wu Tang (forever double cd), As mentioned before... Redman, Rass Kass, Brotha Lynch Hung ( as sick as he is... I was into him then), The Roots (Illadelph Life), Ice Cubes death certificate, Mos Def (Black on Both Sides), Jay Z's (In my lifetime Vol I, II, & III, Roc La Familia). Who can forget about the best of all time... ALL 3 BIGGIES cd were classics, Master P (Ice Cream Man cd), TRU was big then also.

I can't think of anymore but I'm sure I'm missing something.

You wanna free Africa, I stare at yuh
Cuz we ain't got it too good in America
I can't **** with them overseas
My homeboy died over a key of cocaine
It was plain and simple
The 9mm went [crrcch] to the temple
[crrcch-crrcch-crrcch] was the sound I put the bitch down
And ran to the schoolyard bathroom
Looked in the trash can yo it had room
So I ducked my ass in it for a minute
Covered with trash I had to lay back
Mad as ****, thinkin' about the payback

I’m on a one way mission,
to get a politician to honor……
or he’s a gonna,
by the time I get to Arizona.
