Jermaine Dupri & Da Brat Talk Favorite 90's Hip Hop Collaborations At VH1 Hip Hop Honors


Not only was the 90's the best era of fashion, style, movies, and sitcoms, it also yielded the best Hip Hop collaborations.

(AllHipHop Features) Without a doubt, the 90's is the golden era of both Hip Hop & R&B, so it was only right for VH1 to have one of it's best celebratory shows in true 90's style with a 90's themed block party on the lot on Brooklyn St. at Paramount Studios in Hollywood CA.

To celebrate the golden era, and the time when Hip Hop truly became mainstream and permeated popular and mainstream culture, VH1's 'Hip Hop Honors: The 90s Game Changers' honored Mariah Carey, Jermaine Dupri, Martin Lawrence, Master P, and Hype Williams.

AllHipHop's Rea Davis caught up with honoree Jermaine Dupri & Da Brat to discuss their favorite Hip Hop collaborations during the era, since they were a part of so many.

JD expressed that he was extremely excited about his label, So So Def being honored with Xscape. Da Brat was also excited to see JD and Mariah be honored as well as see Xscape and Missy Elliott perform.

"The best 90s collaboration is "Funkdafied" it's the birth of Brat, and it was just that time when everyone was having a great time," said JD. "Mine is "Always Be My Baby" the remix with myself, Xscape, and JD, and Mariah, of course it's her song. But the remix of that....that's my song....we have a few of those," said Brat.

Man when is the best going to come out? I mean no matter what she wears she had that masculine demeanor.


@ReaDavis: I concur the 90's were very possibly the Golden Era of hip hop. Now when it comes to R&B then the 90's are not even close. Check all the great artists from the 60's, 70's and even further back. Marvin, Al Green, Isleys, Smokey, Aretha, Gladys Knight, Maze, Gap Band, etc. I could go on for days....
