Janet Jackson's 10 Best Hip-Hop Collabs

One of the most influential, trendsetting artists of all-time, Janet Jackson’s Hip Hop roots run deep. Janet arguably not only shaped the sound of pop music but redefined it when she linked with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis back in 1986 to release her monstrously successful third album, Control.  Her creative fingerprints are imprinted on pop music, making her connection with Hip Hop even more significant. 

Her rap collaborations span decades, with one of her most notable early collaborations coming in in 1989, when she linked with rap star Heavy D for the dance-friendly “Alright” from her Janet Jackson’s Rhythm Nation 1814 album. Since then, she’s worked with everyone from Chuck D,  to Missy Elliot, Busta Rhymes, J. Cole, and Nelly among others. 

Here are the legend’s 10 dopest Hip Hop collaborations.
