Crush on You: The Hottest ’90s Celeb Chicks, IMHO

As soon as I saw Joell Ortiz’s new video, “Call Me,” I loved it. Memories of my many high school crushes came rushing back. I’m always pleased when the introspective moments of a rap song can trigger that nostalgia and make you feel like someone is telling your story.

Back in them days (the ’90s), I was hardly a player, but I did crush a lot. I don’t mean it like the late great Big Pun meant it, I’m talking about actual crushes—usually on women I had no shot in hell at actually making the acquaintance of. Yup, my crazy celebrity crushes.

Being that today’s Valentines Day and everyone is all lovey dovey (well, if you’re lucky) I figured I’d flashback on a few of my imaginary loves of V-Day’s past. —Rondell Conway

Lil’ Kim (Circa ’96) – My Rap Shortie

Before the evolution of the many changing faces of Kimberly “Lil’ Kim” Jones, I had it bad for the Brooklyn rapstress. Big Momma was sassy, sexy and nasty on the mic. Needless to say, her notorious Hardcore poster was hanging on my wall, regardless of the fact it offended every girl that entered my room.

Jada Pinkett – My Hollywood Starlet

Will Smith beat me to it, but I had all intentions of making Ms. Pinkett my wife. From her college sweetheart role on a Different World to playing the lovely around the way chick in Menace II Society, Jada worked for me in any setting. That mesmerizing stare she gave was the shit. If Kane didn’t beat me to it, I would’ve whooped on “fagg*t ass” Chauncey myself.

Keisha (Total) – My R&B Chick

Once again, I was beaten to the punch by an actor. Before the former singer for Bad Boy’s first girl group, Total, married Omar Epps, I didn’t want no one else in my life. The first time I laid eyes on her, decked in all black leather, in the “Can’t You See” video I was straight trippin’, boo.

  • John Cochran

    I may have squeezed one out to all these women at some point as a teen. Kenya moore’s tits are amazing. Should’ve been longer though, cause it was some bad chicks out in the 90s. Now, with all this reality tv bullshit they be putting some regular looking ass chicks on tv.

  • Brahsef

    I had the biggest crush on Mya when she came out. That bitch is baaaad.

    • chillin mayne

      dayummmm…mya was HELLA fina son.,.she can STILL get it to

  • Fireforreal

    Yeah I have to say Kim and Foxy had it going on even more back then in the looks department. Sweey but street. Now they just look like washed up whores who spent to much time on bullshit. Oh yeah shout out to Mona lisa. She came and went but she was a bad bitch mose def, And Faith could have got it back then also.

    Had to vote for Kenya Moore. We went to the same highschool and my dumb ass had no idea who she was (she’s 3 years older) until after she graduated.

    “If Kane didn’t beat me to it, I would’ve whooped on “fagg*t ass” Chauncey myself.”

    HAHAHAAA! “I’m Pinky, nigga!”

    • http://www.jamal7mile.blogspot.com Jamal7Mile

      Christina Applegate (Kelly Bundy) was my white chick. Honorable mention to Pam Anderson on Baywatch.

      • http://www.bboycult.com $yk!

        “Honorable mention to Pam Anderson”

        ^ Ain’t she passing the Hep C around? Might wanna rethink that one…

        • Jamal7Mile

          ‘Sup $yk?

          Yup, she sure is. Forgot all about that. I meant the ’90s Pam (if she was healthy). And co-sign the Stacy Dash comment. Where the hell is she anyway?

          Anybody remember Lark Voorhies who played Lisa on Saved By The Bell?

          Anybody remember Lark Voorhies who played Lisa on Saved By The Bell?

          ^ Zack was tapping that in real life. I remember Martin was boinking too.

          I’d smut her out…and the more chicks we point out the more I see Rondell has a bland taste in women…

  • BIGNAT

    wtf is wrong with you why didn’t you use updated pictures of how they look now. Dominique Dawes don’t even look legal in that pic even though she is older than me.

  • latino heat

    it was between Ananda and Kenya Moore, i went with Kenya though. even Lil Kim in her prime couldn’t touch Kenya.

    no love for the original Destiny’s Child line up? i used to think LeToya was finer then Beyonce back then.

    i seen the new Toni Braxton video with Trey Songz the other day and she is STILL bangin.

    Mariah was my 1st crush back in like ’90-’91 and would still get it before most of these girls that are in their prime.

    i would still slap the shit out of someone’s mama for one night with Mya.
