If you're a man of a certain age, the '90s and early 2000s were probably a special time for you.

It was before hip-hop merged with big business and still seemed to belong to the artists and fans. It was a time when you could turn on the TV and watch Michael Jordan play on any given night. And there were a bevy of beautiful female celebrities that you probably had a crush on.

Whether those women came from the world of TV, film or music, they seemed to catch  the attention of a whole generation of young men, especially rap fans, because hip-hop seemed to have an affinity for a lot of the same women.

Take Halle Berry for example. Hip-hop has been so fascinated with the gorgeous actress that she's been mentioned in rap songs for more than two decades.

That said, we've put together a gallery of these amazing women, not only to celebrate their beauty and talent, but to remind you of the crush you probably had on them (and most likely still do).
