In the Dungeon.

Was living in Europe when this dropped, so this version went way harder.

These dudes performed an entire Five Percent Nation creed on network television and let a sound stage of gyrating partiers know that the devil’s a conniver.

1990 was amazing.

Swag.

When you see it

1999 seems like forever ago.

You ain’t been doing the education though.

I still want my DVD box set of classic Arsenio performances. WHY IS THIS NOT A THING?!!?

"There is certainly a formula for rap songs in 2013. For unsigned artists, it is to create a song that gains enough regional/meme popularity that bigger, semi-irrelevant rappers will want to hop on the remix. For signed artists, you simply create the framework for a song and then hit the Dial-A-Rapper hotline. From there, you wait your turn until the next available rap artist answers your call. You don’t get to choose them. They are interchangeable, and any combination/permutation of them on your song will guarantee radio plays and blog streams."
