The 10 Best Summer Songs of the '90s
7. "Jump," Kriss Kross
Kriss Kross'll make ya...jump, jump? Yes, these saggy pants sportin' kinder-rappers were awesome, and they managed to put out one of the most solid summer songs of the '90s, despite them being oh, not old enough to drive. They could jump though, and that was almost as good.
6. "Fantastic Voyage," Coolio
Cars. BBQ's. Half-nekkid ladies. Fantastic voyages. Come on; everything about this song screams summer, and the fact that Coolio, with those tight-ass braids and whatnot, was the one that brought it to us only sweetens the deal. They just don't make hip-hop, or cornrow-sportin' rappers, like they did in the '90s. But that's okay; if you resurrect this song, you'll be transported right back.
5. "Mo Money Mo Problems," The Notorious B.I.G.
Oh man, how we miss Biggie. It was all about the mo' money, mo' problems motif back in the '90s, thanks to Puffy and Ma$e helping to fill out the song alongside that husky-voiced rapper. This song is the perfect summer jam, even if Ma$e did go all rogue pastor on us, while Puffy did...well, whatever it is he did. Became a mogul or something? We don't really know.
4. "California Love," 2Pac
Summer songs always need the right amount of party added to them to make them legit enough for those mid-year antics, and that's where 2Pac, and "California Love," excel. He's all about gettin' down with the city of Compton, because why not. California loooooooove.
