The year 1993 was a special one for hip-hop. It didn’t really matter which type of hip-hop you preferred, there was a classic album released that year that you still treasure to this day. Wu-Tang Clan, Dr. Dre, A Tribe Called Quest, Onyx, Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill, 2Pac, Guru, Naughty By Nature, Ice Cube, Black Moon, Souls of Mischief, De La Soul, Digable Planets, and KRS-ONE all released classic albums in ’93, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
On April 5th, at B.B. King Blues Club & Grill in NYC, Props To Hip-Hop will be putting on a 20th anniversary show celebrating the year 1993, featuring a live band, and two dozen emcees covering some of the year’s most memorable songs.
With Props To Hip-Hop’s celebration in mind, RapReviews caught up with some of our favorite artists and entertainers to get their memories of ’93. Some of the memories are insightful when it comes to finding out more about the music from that era, and some of the memories are just downright hilarious. Enjoy this trip down memory lane.
