    ^yep but it was considered wack during the time i think. it was def the jiggy era and alot of cats had that sound, feel, look in the videos whatnot...def the end of the gritty era and mcs started to get more polished with what they put out.

    this was when i started to listen to music hard tho and i love alot of the music out of this era as well as the 2 before and some after. my favorite time tho since i got to really experience it as it happened

    The late 90's like already mentioned was when hip hop became polished, the gritty grimy era was over, and almost everyone had the same sound, and most of the videos looked the same. Bad Boy was running it in 97 with a dozen songs on the radio and with albums like Life After Death, The Family, Harlem World and Money Power Respect. Then DMX came along and literally brought a new sound and energy to the game, he had the streets and mainstream on lock and for a moment was filling the Tupac void. Around this time Will Smith was dominating the charts and Jigga Man bursts on the mainstream scene with Hard Knock Life. The south was beginning to bubble with Master P and No Limit and Juvenile and Cash Money. This era to me wasn't as good as the mid 90's but the music from 97-99 was good.

    I still think 1997 is the most underrated year in hip hop history....most of that is probably nostagia though because that summer was probably the best summer of my life (so far)

    Puffy - Cant Nobody Hold Me Down, Missing You, All About The Benjamins
    Biggie - Hypnotize, Mo Money Mo Problems, Notorous Thugs
    Lil Kim - Crush On You, Ladies Night
    Bone Thugs - Look Into My Eyes, If I Could Teach The World
    Busta Rhymes - Put You Hands Where My Eyes Could See (this was the song that made me an avid fan of hip hop)
    Tupac - Hail Mary
    Camp Lo - Luchini
    Heavy D - Big Daddy
    Jay-Z - Who You Wit
    Scarface - Smile
    Missy - The Rain
    Timbaland & Magoo - Up Jumps Da Boogie
    Wyclef - Stayin Alive

    I'll admit that this was probably the "worst" year of the 90s, but in hindsight it was pretty damn good

    Bad Boy records flashy and shiny music first changed the way people made music, then Nelly came in 2000 and made those wack nursery rhymes type songs and things weren't the same since.

    The Shiny Suit era was the beginning of the end for Hip Hop. People like to blame the south but Puffy started its downfall in my opinion.
