Last Thursday we introduced a new weekly segment here at iHipHop in which we post 25 old school hip-hop photos as part of the internet phenomena known as Throwback Thursday. And for our second installment of #ThrowbackThursday we again have scoured the deepest, darkest depths of the 'net to bring you more vintage rap photos you've probably never seen before. This week we've got some goodies, for sure. Mark Wahlberg playing ball with Will Smith, Wesley Snipes, OutKast, Mya, and L.A. Reid circa 1996, Bun B and Pimp C in high school, and Prodigy of Mobb Deep like you've never seen him! Peep the photos after the jump. Enjoy!
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.
Back in 1996 Shaquille O'Neal dropped his You Can't Stop the Reign album and despite a whopping seventeen tracks there was one that was conspicuously missing. "The Bigger They R", featuring Fat Joe, Big Pun and Easy Mo Bee didn't make the cut due to legal reasons unbeknownst to us. But now, thanks to the powers of the internet the track is finally out, eighteen years later. Produced by Domingo we get verses from Shaq, Fat Joe, Big Pun, and even legendary producer Easy Mo Bee. Listen after the jump!
In recognition of America's historic event this past Tuesday I have decided to bring all of you this throwback video from 2002. Anything IS possible!!
