Longevity is a Rare Feat

It's wonderous to achieve just one hit, but 20 years' worth of hits? Only a few have done it, and right now, hip hop has its golden years on loop with artists like Nas, Mobb Deep and Diddy, who debuted in the early '90s, reflecting on how they've had the music game on lock for two decades with throwbacks to their old material, plenty of new music, tours and more. Noteworthy: Female lyrical assassins from that era, such as Lauryn Hill and Lil' Kim, are coming up on 20-year anniversaries, too, as are many more of our favorite emcees. Meanwhile, read on to see how some of the fellas are paying homage to their illustrious careers and the fans who support them. —Dominique Zonyeé (@DominiqueZonyee).
