For over two decades, Mariah Carey has been knocking out hits and keeping her name relevant. Whether it’s with her sheer beauty or knack for hitting the high notes, this ageless superstar has seen music evolve more-so than most female vocalists in any genre. However, while many of her recent R&B counterparts have gained success from catering their tunes specifically to a Hip-Hop audience by collaborating with rappers, most of them wouldn’t even be around if weren’t for Mimi headlining that urban crossover style in the first place.

So, to shine some light on the influence Mariah’s had on the industry, TSS has compiled 20 of the best collaborations this famed NY singer has done with MCs over her illustrious career. Having helped everyone from Jay-Z to ODB and Snoop to Ice Cube, you can’t say her impact isn’t impressive.
