XXL teamed up with Hot 97 last night (June 27) to throw Word Up: The 90′s Party live at New York City’s SOBs nightclub.

Sponsored by Corona, the event had Hot 97 personality, Peter Rosenberg, and the station’s DJs like Mister Cee, DJ Enuff and Funkmaster Flex spinning some of the best tunes from the 90s, ranging from MCs like Nas to the Lost Boyz, LL Cool J, Foxy Brown, The Notorious B.I.G., Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, M.O.P., 2Pac, Dr. Dre and even R&B artists like 112, Joe and SWV.

“There wouldn’t be hip-hop without the 90′s,” Mister Cee screamed over the sounds of Nas early in his DJ set. “There wouldn’t be hip-hop without the 90′s!”

Crooked I from Slaughterhouse came through to show both the XXL and Hot 97 staffs love, overseeing a packed crowd that partied, break danced and even rapped along to all the great hits from the 90′s. Gotta love the 90′s…word up!—XXL Staff

    the Zulu KINGz and the Ready to Rock crew was in the building… i think we was the only real hip hop crew actually from the 90s in that entire place reppin !!!!

    Ready to Rock is dat crew who performed at the skate key on 3rd ave in tha BX back in 97′. It was 1,100 Hip Hop heads up in skate key and they were the only young B-boy crew coming out the BX from ages 17-20 years old. B-boy’n was making it’s come back in the mid 90′s and now it’s a global force.. B-boyz are the real representation of the streets, we the corner stone of Hip Hop for ya who don’t know.. The B-boy Stance is save’n the youth from violence, drugs, drinking, degrading women, & sagging jeans lol… Truth is in Hip Hop we need to educate our children for the world that they will actually live in, give them some real survival skills. To me this means sex education; we have made a small start there, but against enormous opposition. And we need drug education—not the “Just Say No” malarkey, but real drug education that informs people of the real risks and benefits of these substances, and that also makes clear to people that the agenda of retail capitalism, the alcohol and tobacco cartels, may not be in one’s personal interest. And finally, we must bring cyberspace into the classroom in a very big way. Sex, drugs, and computers are all society-shaping forces that are here to stay. If we do not inform our children of the dynamics of these things then we cannot say, in any serious way, that we have educated them.
