Made in the 80s, Raised in the 90s (Part 2 of 8)

My dedication to the greatest decade ever continues. And with that I say this: Its not that I'm not a fan of the music scene these days, its just that it doesn't compare to the creative genius of artists from the 90s nor do artists have longevity nowadays. Lets not get it twisted, I'm no music guru...BUT I do know the difference between good and better. The 90s blessed us with Tupac (Keep Ya Head Up, California Love, the list clearly goes on) and Biggie (Juicy, One More Chance,etc.). We felt the presence of New Orleans with No Limit and Cash Money, the candid story that The Life and Times of Sean Carter provided, sick faces when people heard Illmatic. Everyone was constantly reminded what the hood was like on the 1st by Bone Thugs and Harmony. We saw Mary J's rise, demise, and climb back to top...the ageless Mariah Carey. We felt the originality of Outkast, Erykah Badu, and Busta Rhymes to name a few. Everyone enjoyed the plethora of "boy bands" such as Dru Hill, Silk, and Public Announcement. The world is still begging for a Fugees reunion. On that I'll end this segment (otherwise it would go on forever). Part 3 on the way.....
