While it never produced a single with the lasting legacy of “Pony” -- from Lumpkin's 1996 debut album “The Bachelor” -- “100%” was the more visionary and expansive collection.

After all these years, we’re still talking about what went wrong between Dame Dash and Jay Z that ended up killing Roc-A-Fella Records.

According to hip-hop folklore, the former best friends fell out because Dame tried to make Cam’ron vice president of their label, while Jay was busy drinking mai-tais with Ty Ty. Somebody may have had a different experience at a different time in her life.” The pair would later begin dating in 2000 after building as friends first, but Dame admitted there was some initial apprehension because of Jay.

And because all good stories involve a love triangle, another rumor claims both Jay and Dame were fighting for Aaliyah’s affections, which Dame ultimately won. “We developed a real friendship before [dating], but there was always apprehension because other people would try to get at her first.

This allegedly shot Jay’s sodium levels through the roof, and the house the men built with Kareem “Biggs” Burke came crashing down. So I had to, but then it was just like, ‘F*ck it.'” Dame and Aaliyah were still together when the singer was tragically killed in a plane crash in 2001.

But other than that, she was already engaged to Damon.

Everybody knows “Pony.” Ginuwine’s 1996 debut single is synonymous with sex and the timeless art of titillation, immortalized by its own video, Internet meme and the 2012 male stripper drama “Magic Mike.” But the R&B singer born Elgin Lumpkin, Timbaland’s first solo artist and contemporary of Aaliyah, didn’t reach his creative peak until nearly three years later, with the release of sophomore album “100% Ginuwine” on March 16, 1999.

Produced by Timbaland, the song has made a huge comeback in recent years given several prominent pop culture references to the track.

Rihanna sampled the beat and part of the chorus for 2012's "Jump," with the track featured prominently in the Channing Tatum film by character Donna Meagle (played by Retta), who repeatedly mentions that Ginuwine is her cousin, the singer finally made an appearance on the show in a few episodes over the course of Seasons Six and Seven.

“Working with each other back then was truly amazing because we got to see each other’s talent grow on a daily basis,” says Ginuwine, calling Billboard during tour rehearsal for his new group TGT, with Tank and Tyrese.

“We were coming into our own as producers, as writers and as entertainers.

The fan of innuendos completely shirks any hint of coyness on the track, which features a beat reminiscent of squeaking bed springs.
