Hip-hop throwback photos of the week

celebrity throwback photos - Drake and Trey Songz

We all have unforgettable moments in our lives, but when you’re one of hip-hop’s biggest stars, those moments are extra special. Many of our favorite celebrities joined us for another round of throwback photos, but this week, hip-hop took over with their classic photos. Drake and Trey Songz swapped photos from their early collaborations, DJ Drama took us back to the 90s with his photo with Bahamadia and his sister, and Diddy reminded us that he and Jay Z have been doing this for a long minute. Jay Z, who has been getting a lot of extra press lately, joined in on the celebrity throwbacks and posted a photo from early on in his career. Who would have guessed then that Mr. Carter would change hip-hop history?

Beyoncé posted photos of longtime friends and Destiny’s Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle, Ludacris posted pics of himself and Mystikal, and Jermiane Dupri shared photos of him with Lil Bow Wow. Swizz Beatz also revealed a memorable moment with President Barack Obama. Take a look at our favorite hip-hop throwback photos on Instagram this week.
