Unlike a lot of rap then and now, "93 'Til Infinity" is a feel-good song. The music video, which was filmed on a beautiful day in Yosemite, emphasized that it isn't about grinding in the hood or vaporizing your enemies. It's about sitting back and proudly taking stock of your life. That has to be a big reason why, 20 years later, the best clip of "93 'Til Infinity" has more than 5 million views on YouTube.

The members of Souls of Mischief quickly disclaim the notion that the song made them big stars, and they are certainly not, as they put it, Snoop Dogg-famous. But Snoop Dogg is a fan — and he's featured on the group's latest single. Kanye West is a fan. Rappers like Big K.R.I.T. and Freddie Gibbs are fans. And those names are a few among many, all around the world, for whom Souls of Mischief still perform. "Those guys will be able to tour for the rest of their lives off that song," Sharp says. "Their children will be able to live off of that." So "93 'Til Infinity" isn't just a popular song, or a good song. It's also a prophetic song. It started in 1993, and it just might live on forever.
