What could be better than cooling out with some old-school jams before a long weekend? Kick back, relax and vibe out with our Flashback Fridays: ’90s hip-hop and R&B edition.

1. Aaliyah – Try Again

It was Aaliyah’s birthday yesterday, and we celebrated by playing her in the office all day. RIP, baby girl.

2. Missy Elliott & Da Brat – Sock It 2 Me

Da Brat and Missy were an unmistakable force in the ’90s. Whatever happened to them?

3. Nelly – Country Grammar

If you didn’t like this song when it came out, we don’t know what to tell you. A classic by all definitions, and Nelly changed the game by opening the door for sing-song/melodic rapper…oh, hey, Drake.

4. Twista – Overnight Celebrity

This was one of those moments when we realized the genius that was Kanye West. This beat is masterful.

5. Petey Pablo – Raise Up

He might not have ever done anything else, but Petey Pablo had a jam with this one.
