He States “Def Jam is the dopest label in hip-hop, in the culture of hip-hop,” then goes on to say. “There really would be no hip-hop as we know it today if it wasn’t for Def Jam. But you don’t get that respect without also being the label that single-handedly destroyed hip-hop. Every time you think of what’s wrong with hip-hop, the lyrics, the commercialized music, one artist being played on the radio all day, things like that, that’s all Def Jam.”
Is it just me or does this man love to talk!!! He’s on the red carpet at VH1’s Hip Hop Honors running off at the mouth about Def Jam, when that’s who is being honored that night. I swear some of these old kats needa just sit down and shut up! He is just contradicting himself. lemme know what ya’ll think.

I‘ma 80’s baby so I’m stuck in the 90’s when it comes to music lol. Here is a list of my favorite artists of the 90’s era.
Let’s kick *it* off with SWV
BLAME IT ON MY OLDER SISTER CRYSTAL!! I used to want to kill myself because all she used to listen to was SWV in the early to mid 90’s. As I got older I became hooked, the groups lead signer Coko has the most unique voice i’ve ever heard, and on top of that her range is impeccable . Around this time period is when all the fly girls had long nails and baggy clothes, i wonder if it’ll ever make a comeback…and I hope SWV makes a come back! Coko has a gospel album coming out in approx 2 hours lol “The Winner in Me”..i pre-ordered it on iTunes, I’m a fan lol.
Next is MONICA
Monica Arnold bka Monica hmm….what can i say about Monica, to me Monica not only epitomized beauty but her voice was bananas. Just the tone of her voice even when she came out when she was barely a teen surpassed most of the artists out. I remember having a couple Monica “Word Up” posters on my wall when i was younger. Monica’s still doing her thing and her future seems extremely bright. Good Luck Mo.
And I can’t stop this countdown without Foxy Brown
I drive everyone crazy with Fox Boogie Brown aka Inga Marchand bka Foxy Brown. Whenever someone sees that I have 146 Foxy Brown songs on my iTunes, they think i’m crazy lol. But to me Foxy was always “That Bitch”, not only was she Trini, but her whole swag was off the hook, and her flow topped it off. Arguably the illest female emcee to ever grace the mic. She was claimed by two of the illest emcees out Jay-Z and Nas. Foxy does seem to let her fans down a lot but I still ride cuz she did her thing and left her legend of good music and entertainment. We miss u boogs!
There is a couple more artists I can name but these are definitely my three favorite 90’s artists.
