There’s a certain mystique about preserved photographs from eras come-and-come, especially when they include larger-than-life figures, key players responsible for shaping hip-hop’s history and canon. While the photographs taken by Al Pereira during a night at the Hollywood Palladium are not new, they remain an amazing reminder of three legendary lyricists in their prime.

Even Snoop Dogg, himself a legendary, borderline famous hip-hop figure. The Doggfather posted a picture of Nas, 2Pac, and Redman united as one on Instagram, opting to go caption-free; better to leave it all to our imagination, perhaps. Check it out for yourself below.

Clearly, Snoop looks back lovingly on the early nineties, which happens to be the era when he came up. Dr. Dre also took a trip down memory lane of his own, sharing a photo set up of hip-hop legends: “this is fu*kin’ hip-hop. ” You can check it out below. Looking real and like the one Snoop shared, or imagined like Dre’s, it’s safe to say that Throwback photos are jewels for the wistful nostalgic types, me personally among them. Any fans of the golden era out there?
