Keyshia Cole’s Throwback Photos are a Star-Studded Trip Down Memory Lane

Everybody loves Keyshia!

Keyshia Cole may be humble this season of Love & Hip Hop Hollywood, but back in the day, she was kind of a big deal (and still is). Having connected with legends M.C. Hammer and Tupac Shakur at a young age, Keyshia found herself running R&B back in 2005 with the release of her soulful bible, The Way It Is which include classic “reclaiming my time” hits such as “Love,” “I Should’ve Cheated,” and “I Changed My Mind.” Her sophomore album, Just Like You charted #2 on Billboard’s top 200 and in the same year she scored a Grammy nod for Best Contemporary R&B Album. Six albums and three more nominations later, Keyshia is on the verge of releasing project #7, but let’s a take a pause to see the journey she’s had thus far. From Kanye to Nas, Missy Elliot to Lil’ Kim Keyshia has worked with, performed with, or just hanged with them all. Flip through to take this star-studded trip down memory lane.
