If you were like me, the 2022 Super Bowl Halftime Show was an awesome flashback to your youth back in the ’90s! The ’90s produced some of the best Rap and R&B records of all time, and watching Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, and Mary J. Blige killing it on the stage as the Super Bowl was incredible. They all looked and sounded as good as ever! I found myself asking Siri how old each one of them are now, and being in awe at how awesome they looked, sounded, and performed.
Now that the hoopla from the Super Bowl has subsided, I thought it would be cool to look back at the first big hit from each of the performers at this year’s halftime show. So, enjoy this flashback to the beginning with Dr. Dre’s Nuthin’ but a ‘G’ Thang featuring Snoop Doggy Dogg, a number one Rap and R&B hit from 1992. Next, we have Snoop Doggy Dogg’s debut single in 1993, What’s My Name?, a top ten hit on the Hot 100 and R&B charts.
Then, we have Eminem’s video for his 1999 top ten Rap song My Name Is, followed by Mary J. Blige’s number one R&B song from 1992, You Remind Me. And, even though they didn’t make their names in the ’90s, enjoy this look back at 50 Cent’s first top five Rap song from 2002, Wanksta, and Kendrick Lamar’s first top five Rap song as well from 2012, Swimming Pools (Drank)!
