Glory Years

The Glory Years was considered Nine Music’s (then Nine Foundation) golden age between the years 1996 to 1998. It was the first 2 years of the first generation (first generation was from 1996 to 1999). There was 20 music releases in these 2 years which also boasted a music community where critics, fans and artists showed huge enthusiasm in Nine Music’s activities.

Although the technical sound quality of the music released then was low, many believe that there has never been an era as fresh, unique as the Glory Years. The era was characterized by many street cyphers, talent shows and house parties. The leading artists of the era were glamorized and prolifically spoken about. Their actions were concidered legendary with the music releases providing the narative of the community.
