On Air Now
Capital XTRA In The Morning With Jez Welham 6am - 10am
For some the 90's might feel like just last week, but when you take a look through how the likes of Snoop Dogg, Jay Z, Dr Dre and more 90's hip-hop legends have changed throughout the years, you won't believe it.
Lil Kim has gone through one of the biggest celebrity transformations of all time. The rapper completely altered her own image with a range of cosmetic treatments. She is barely recognisable.
Will Smith and Tatyana Ali aka cousins Will and Ashley from hit 90s sitcom The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air recently reunited at a party for this amazing photo - don't they still look so good?
Taken in 1999, the photo on the left hand side of a young Eminem defines who Slim Shady is to most fans - bleach blonde hair and baggy t-shirts. Eminem in 2014 might have lost the earrings and blonde hair, but he's not lost his flow.
Some things in life get better with age, and Dr Dre is one of them. Now confirmed as the richest person in hip-hop, it's clear that Dre is too busy working on Beats Electronics and hitting the gym to release 'Detox.'
Lauryn Hill turns the big 4-0 next year, but the legendary hip-hop icon could still pass for her 21-year-old self.
If you can see past the questionable chain and matching yellow waistcoat and bandana (we're sure it was cool back then), Nas really hasn't aged much in the last two decades. It's hard to believe he just celebrated his 41st birthday.
Mary J Blige's style has changed several times throughout her long and healthy career, but her unique features remain the same, as does her ability to make incredible music.
Whether you know him as Tracy Lauren Marrow, Ice T or 'Fin' for his role in 'Law And Order,' the famous rapper and actor's face can't be forgotten - he has been rocking the same goatee for two decades after all.
Really, either of these photos could have been taken in 2014 couldn't they? Since 1999, when the photo on the left was taken, DMX seriously hasn't changed much at all.
When you look back at photos of Missy Elliott in the 90's, she really did have some questionable outfit choices (even for the 90's!) In 2014 she looks better than ever, but when's the new music coming Missy?
It's hard to know how, but apparently LL Cool J's skin looks better as the years go on. He needs to up his hat game though if he wants to compare with his 90's self.
Bar shaving his moustache a little thinner, the only change to Coolio's face and style in 20 years is that he tied his hair up!
Queen Latifah looks just as fresh-faced in 2014 as she did back in the 1990's, and why wouldn't she? The superstar is keeping busy with acting and presenting taking the limelight over her music endeavours.
Jay's been in the game for a very long time. This photo of him was taken in 1999, and now in 2014 he's still making hits and smashing records, which just shows that if you've got the talent your hip-hop career can have longevity.
Busta has blown the world away with some wild hairstyles in his time on the hip hop scene, so much so that we think 2014 Busta should bring back to dreads... Or something even more adventurous maybe?
It's not easy to find a photo of snoop without his classic dreadlocks in, but if you look for some vintage shots of the legendary hip hop artists you'll find this amazing style paired with some amazing style choices.
2014 was the year that Outkast reunited and they looked just as outlandish as they did back in the 90's.
Diddy's face has certainly filled out since he won the Best R&B Video for 'I'll Be Missing You' in 1997, aged 28. 17 years later and he might not be picking up VMAs but he's certainly earning the big bucks.
He's the man that you either grew up listening to on your walkman or watching on the TV. But the baby-faced Fresh Prince Of Bel Air is now married with children of his own, yet Will Smith really hasn't changed much in all this time.
