Is it too early to reminisce about mid-'90s rap?

I just stumbled upon this gem of mid-90s Denver rap, Give it Up 2 Da Mile High by the Black Hole Posse, and was transported back to a time of Fila sweatshirts, Alize and tall beanies. Clearly, the Black Hole Posse was all about "regulatin' in this Colorado sunshine" with video shots of City Park and Zona's Tamales in Five Points. Give it up to 1996!
