Her Mother Told Her To Be Home At Niiiiine

Alright, this post has been brewing for a bit so here goes.
Nearly two years ago an epic battle was waged over email. It ran from February of 2009 to June of that same year. The battle was between me and a coworker who will remain nameless to protect them when they lose the public judgment. The rules were simple:

Link to 90s R&B Jamz via YouTube, generally 3-4 per email, and try to one up the other person. No repeats allowed ('cause that would be weak) and you were supposed to stick to genre. We both broke this rule more than once so I removed most stuff from the 80s and the pure hip-hop songs (Onyx - Slam, for instance).

The links aren't particularly fresh in the email so I made the playlists based on what was still linked and by extrapolating from the email comments.
Here are the playlists (made anonymous to avoid the bias):
