Nicki’s Top 10 Old-School Hip Hop Songs


The 80’s were my favorite decade. During my teen years I really came into who I am as a person. Teenage Nicki had a confidence that escaped me for about a decade but is now back. Imposter syndrome was nonexistent. I was so sure of what I wanted in life but that’s not the purpose of this post.

The purpose of this post is to tell you a little more about me.

I have always loved gospel music. During pandemic quarantine I realized how much I also love traditional hymns. My favorite gospel artists are:

  1. Fred Hammond
  2. Jonathan McReynolds
  3. Jekalyn Carr
  4. Jessica Reedy

Outside of gospel, my musical preferences in general are:

  1. New Edition
  2. 80’s old-school hip hop
  3. 90’s R&B

Here Are My 10 Favorite Old-School Hip Hop Songs:

  1. I’m Bad – LL Cool J
  2. Funky Beat – Whodini
  3. Ya Cold Wanna Be Wit Me – U.T.F.O.
  4. The Show – Doug E. Fresh
  5. Mr. Big Stuff – Heavy D. and the Boys
