May not of been the best quality wise, but Hip Hop was straight up on fire in 1999. Every region was dropping solid quality albums at a monthly pace

McDonald's is the most popular restaurant. It doesn't mean it's good though.

I don't know why, but that's what came to my mind too. Feels like everybody dropped an album in '99 and most of the albums are classics to me.

EDIT: 2000 too.

1999-2000...


All Coasts were shining and it was still a lot of diversity.


U had Jay-Z, Nas, Mobb Deep, Cash Money, Snoop and Dre, Diddy, etc.

Mos Def had released Black On Both Sides that Fall too. Movie soundtracks were still dope too.


Hip Hop started to die around 2006-2007.

The Texas takeover (Slim Thug, Mike Jones, Paul Wall)

Lil Jon damn near taking over the airwaves


Clipse and Pharrell


Jay-Z hiding for a while but State Property still held it down

T.I

For you two:

You Had To Be Outside Summer 03




20 years later what summer 2002 song you rocking with for this summer?




That time span EVERYBODY was dancing like crazy. The grown and s*xy time for working class folks. This is before Jeezy and BMF turned the clubs dangerous and of course smart phones.

Enjoy the memories

Can't pinpoint a single year, but 92-98 was a crazy run.

Truly the Golden era

Edit: 97' shouldn't be overlooked either

For hip hop then yup.

For dancing and clubbing and everyone generally having a good time 2003-2005 was epic.
