Every time I think of a throwback song I automatically result to the music in the 90’s era but what about the 2000’s? I feel like we tend to neglect and forget how good music use to be during the dawn of the new millenium. This week I’m bringing back some songs that may remind you of your childhood or teen years and I had a really hard time narrowing this list down so I’m going to bring you all into this time of reminiscing slowly making this a 3 part series. Part 1, I have to pay homage to Ja Rule. You cannot doubt that his music was on every radio station, every music video countdown etc and many of us know the lyrics to these songs.

In an interview with The Women of Hip-Hop, the pitbull in a dress, Eve revealed her plans to release a buzz single later this month, with her upcoming album Lip Lock. It’s been nearly a decade since Eve released her last album Eve-Olution,
She also touched on other topics like which femcee she would put on a record and more.
On new female rappers: “I like Azealia Banks. I think her style is dope. If you listen to her lyrics, she knows how to wordplay and I think that’s cute. I’m not really into the Iggy Azalea chick. I can’t really fuck with her music, but her look is crazy. I just can’t believe it.”
On her dream collaboration: “Lauryn Hill has always been my one dream collaboration. She to me is so dope lyrically. Unfortunately, she’s just in a place right now mentally, but that would be a dream come true.”
On which five female MCs she would put on a record: “I would definitely have to get Missy [Elliott]. I would definitely have to do Kim ’cause I never got to do a record with Kim. Azealia Banks, I like her. A lot of people want me to hate on Nicki and say crazy things about her. I ain’t got nothing to say about her. Until somebody names me by name, then I don’t feel like nobody [is talking] about me. I wouldn’t have a problem putting her on a record.”
On the Lil’ Kim vs. Nicki Minaj feud: “It’s not about publicity. It’s about wanting that respect. I think maybe that’s where Kim is coming from, like, you’re doing your thing right now and no one can take that away from you, Nicki—we all see it—but at the end of the day, if it wasn’t for Kim, she wouldn’t be here and that shit is real.”
