94-97 - Hip Hops golden age?

Blog Critics discusses the period 94-97. I remember in that period I was really into Biggie. I listened to his stuff constantly for i dont know how long....

2 of the highest selling hip hop albums of all-time (both of which were DOUBLE albums) from Biggie and 2pac (Life After Death and All Eyez On Me)
- Wu-Tang's monumental double CD and the release of virtually EVERY member's debut solo album
- Mary J. Blige (in her prime and dropping her most amazing album to date) - My Life
- Groups like 112, Boyz II Men, Jodeci, and Dru Hill were lighting up the soul charts.
- TLC's CrazySexyCool
- A Tribe Called Quest was still together.
- Outkast's debut album and their amazing ATLiens follow-up album
- Prince changing his name to a symbol and then releasing a Triple CD
- Aaliyah's debut album and first collaborations with Timbaland
- D'Angelo's amazing debut album Brown Sugar
- R. Kelly's Down Low epic saga that begins his love for soap opera epic songs
- The flash in the pan dominance of The Fugees with their epic album The Score
- The debut's of Jay-Z, Erykah Badu, Usher, Eric Benet, Missy Elliott, Busta Rhymes, and Maxwell just to name a few.
