The 1990s was a vibrant decade marked by multiculturalism and globalization which was enhanced by a piece of game changing technology known then as the world wide web. One of the era’s most successful TV shows, The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, dramatically and comedically displayed how hip hop culture left the hood and was spread across the suburbs. Dope, fresh & da bomb became regular vernacular, baggy pants & backwards baseball hats were regular 8th grade uniform and the music of Salt n Pepa, Coolio, Tone Loc & Young MC were taking over top 40 radio.
