It did well on the charts when it came out in 1995 but has been forgotten since then.

Kind of odd to equate the mid-'90s so specifically to "between 1994 and 1997". 1997 really isn't mid-'90s hip hop, at least not predominantly, certainly not when both 2Pac and Biggie were dead, Death Row had imploded, Puff Daddy and Mase were dominating the charts, Timbaland was one of the most popular producers, and No Limit was the hottest gangsta rap label. I won't enforce my own perspective of the mid-'90s for this thread because it's subjective, but I think most people would probably agree albums like Doggystyle or Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) are far more definitive to mid-'90s hip hop culture than Ghetto D or Harlem World, in which case the year definitions are unnecessary.

Anyways, staying on topic with the thread, here's a great song from 1995:

AZ is most famous for his verse on Nas' "Life's a Bitch", in my opinion probably the greatest in rap history, but he managed to earn a moderate hit of his own with this. Despite its respectable peak, it's still mostly faded into obscurity since.

That's not a lesser known song. That's a VERY well known song.

Misread the title then.

I agree. Rap in 1997 was a clear break from the mid-90s. Even Biggie's Life After Death sounded like the beginning of the late 90s. 1997 was also the year Missy Elliot and Busta Rhymes blew up.

Not to pile up on you 90s Guy. This fact is just important to me on a personal childhood level. lol.

I loves me some late 90s Missy. She was so omnipresent in the rap scene back then.

Lucini by Camp Lo is a total classic. From 1997 but still sounds pretty "mid-90s".

Great song! The intro is familiar. I must recognize the sample.
