Okay, I don’t know if it’s true of not, but I heard that 90s kids are the coolest of ALL millennials. Whether this statement is factual or an opinion, we all love the beauty of 1990s’ Pop Culture. From Hip-Hop and R&B, to hilarious cartoons and late night sitcoms, the 90s delivered true ART, which will always be sampled and altered in modern entertainment.
If you look at pop culture today a lot of television shows, music artists, writers, fashion designers, and even television networks are influenced by the edginess of the 1990s. The 90s was only 16 years ago, but it feels like it was just yesterday when we were blessed with the talents of the prolific decade.
Today, music artists in Hip-Hop and R&B sample famous songs such as One in A Million by Aaliyah, which was sampled by Tink; Say It by Brownstone, which was sampled by Tory Lanez; and Who Do I Run to by Xscape, which was sampled by DJ Nasty, just to name a few, have made an imprint on the music industry’s new sound. People love and miss the authenticity of the mood, the vibe, and the soul of 90s Hip-Hop and R&B music. The influence and demand of music inspires today’s fashion. The influence of saggy pants and clothes, Timberland boots, and even the colorful and vibrant styles that were famous in the 90s have returned in the 2010s. The clothes are not only worn by 90s babies, but majority of millennials. And of course we can’t forget about television networks such as BET, MTV, and even Nickelodeon that have brought back 90s TV series and sitcoms such as The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Moesha, Martin, Doug, and even All That. This was all impacted by popular demand from young adults born or raised in the 90s.
Needless to say, every young generation recycles an infamous style, steeze or culture of a popular decade. The 1990s were dope, and give young people a nostalgia of a great time period in their lives. The independence, the rebellion, the love, the chill-laid back style of the 90s will forever breathe life into the hearts of 1990s babies and pop culture until we say we had enough, and I don’t think we had enough!
