Other Artists Millennials Probably Don't Know Other Than Missy Elliot

Apparently, the youths today don't know about rap-goddess Missy Elliot, with such quotable lines like, "This the kinda beat that go ra-ta-ta Ra-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta-ta" and who can forget, "Keep your eyes on my bum-bum-bum-bum-bum." But I digress, we need to educate the youth on these artists too.

Lou Bega

The early 2000s predecessor to Pitbull, Lou Bega had that classic prom hit, "Mambo No. 5" and quickly disappeared from the spotlight, fedora and all.

The Baha Men

Now before you start going, "Who? Who? Who? Who? Who?" this fine group WON A GRAMMY FOR "Who Let the Dogs Out". Where are they now? I don't know, but I'd like to think they've been dancing to their song on repeat since 2001.

Sisqó

Now, let's be real for a second. Sisqó is the only person who has made a wildly hit song over ladies (and I suppose men's too) underwear. 10-year-old me was very confused about the lyrics nonetheless.

Shaggy

Yes, the same man who wrote "Angel" and "It wasn't me" in the same year, we need that unique, silky-smooth tenor voice in our lives once again.

Aaron Carter

Remember that young adolescent who beat Shaq? Wanna feel old? HE'S 25 NOW. Irregardless, we need to see a matchup against LeBron or Steph Curry to see if he's still got it.

New Kids on the Block

Now personally, I was more of an N'SYNC kinda kid growing up, but I had to mention NKOTB because they're actually making a comeback. I don't even know what to say here, because this goes against my whole list completely, but you gotta respect it.

Len

Now this was a pop group folks. IF you take out Backstreet Boys, N'SYNC, etc, this was the album to have. Just listen to "Steal My Sunshine" and be educated.

Will Smith (The Rapper)

Now, a lot of you are probably thinking, "Everyone knows Will Smith" OK, sure. But have you heard Willennium?!?!?!?!? Now, in my mind, this is arguably the greatest album of all time [from an actor that went to rapping and then back to acting]. Unfortunately, Jaden Smith has a long way to go to reach Willennium status (listen for yourself: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Orfa_tGKgIg)
