Throwback Thursday. Everyone and their mother partakes in the weekly internet phenomena that is sweeping the Western world, in which one shares old school images on various popular social networking sites (most notably Instagram). And perhaps the genre of music to receive the most love via this tradition is hip-hop, as many (including the artists themselves) share vintage snaps of various rap acts over the decades. Some even dating back to its infancy. So, we here at iHipHop, being the obsessive rap fans that we are, have decided we would partake in this lore as well and share 25 old school hip-hop photos each and every Thursday. This week we’ve got some goodies, including photos of a young Kanye West, Nas & Jay Z before the beef, and even Allen Iverson chillin’ with some notable rappers of the 2000s. Check them all out after the jump! Enjoy.

The 2013 Governor’s Ball Music Festival had one of the craziest lineups of any Summer music festival. To call it epic would be an understatement.

Regardless, thousands of fans attended the weekend’s events and most of them left with an earful of dope music and clothes covered with mud. iHIpHop was on-hand to catch all of the weekend’s festivities including performances by Kanye West, Nas, Freddie Gibbs, Azaealia Banks, Animal Collective, Thievery Corporation and more.
