Ahhhh, 1991. What a year. A Tribe Called Quest released, The Low End Theory, airbags were invented, grunge was just blossoming and a number of truly fabulous people were born *cough* myself *cough*.

It was the beginning of mood rings, sketchers, those necklaces that had your name on a grain of sand (bring ’em back), spiked hair, hoop earrings, but more importantly, it’s the year that these hip hop tracks reigned supreme.
