Dr. Dre's "Nothin' But a G-Thang" technically dropped in 1992 but reached 11th on the Top 100 Billboard charts by the end of 1993 (after peaking at No. 2 earlier in the year). In the hit, Snoop also dropped a reference to Evander "Real Deal" Holyfield. May not sound like much, but it'd be pretty dope to hear your name dropped by a future legend in an era where SoCal dominated the hip-hop scene. 

"Whoomp There It Is" by Tag Team (not rap but we gotta mention it because it was somehow popular) was also featured prominently across stadiums and arenas nationwide. Chicago Bulls fans were shouting it loudly during the NBA Finals. It's a memory you wanted to forget but we wouldn't let you.
