Throwback Thursday is a big thing on the Internet, a day when people feel compelled to share old pictures of themselves as awkward kids and ugly babies. But on this day, for my own #TBT, I plan on waxing poetic on random old shit I come across on the 'Net. Sometimes I like to spark an L and surf the Web for mixtape cuts, old articles, etc. This space will give me an excuse to talk about my favorite era in rap history: the late '90s and early '00s. Ghostface and Jay Z are my favorite rappers.

I already wrote about my love for the Almighty GFK, so now I'm writing about Jiggaman. If you're like me, you have some of these tracks already, but with so much new music popping up, I find it hard to make the time to go back and listen to old cuts.

Hopefully I put you on to some shit, or at the very least we can reminisce. Listen to these, and remember the Jay from way back when he was coming for the crown. Check out these 5 Jay Z Songs You Probably Haven't Heard in a While.
