The 90s proved to be a wonderful and illustrious time for entertainment. Everything kicked ass in the name of “Attitude”, from the television, movies, sports, professional wrestling, and music. Nothing was just as eccentric more than the growth of Hip-Hop around that decade and Queens MC Noreaga (who now likes to be known as P.A.P.I. for some ungodly reason) collected a massive amount of footage with Geno Sims for his unaired documentary series entitled The What What. Here a whole lot of craziness ensues, with rappers brandishing their guns all willy nilly and women sporting their “assets” to the team. It’s pretty amusing seeing the likes of Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, Nas, and Jay-Z (NOT IN A SUIT) all on here along with others, as now over a decade later their roles in rap have changed significantly.

Missinfo put it best when describing the insanity:

There’s random bits of Big Pun, KRS One, Eminem making crank calls, Snoop Dogg at his most misogynistic, a chubby 50 Cent coveting NORE’s then-new Skytel 2-way pager…There’s Jay-Z and Amil, Capone in prison, De La Soul….and at the 2:25 mark, we see Cam’ron shopping his new 17-year-old artist Juelz Santana to Chris Lighty (RIP) and his staff. Amazing.

And Juelz was rapping his ass off surprisingly on here too. One of the many rare gems that can never be duplicated no matter how buddy buddy these guys try to be now. There’s no way you’ll see T.I. or Wayne whipping a gun around on camera without catching another charge in 2013. Women popping their pussy so freely, well that’s a different story.
