Hip Hop Veterans’ Influence On Fashion And Style

They did not just kill it lyrically but when it came to fashion as well.

It was an official fashion take over in the 80’s and 90’s from these Hip hop legends inspiring many of us fashion wise up to date.

The Bandanas, caps, baggy jeans, printed shirts, dungarees, the glasses, they were not pioneered by this generation, those who came before us especially in the hip hop scene put their best fashion foot forward.

So the next time you wear a denim on denim or a camo combo and think you invented the look, honey think again, we’ve all been recreating looks that they brought to life.

From Diddy, TLC, Missy Elliot to Tupac, the list is endless.

The Migos have also stated time and again of how Biggie’s and Pac’s style inspire how they dress most times. Now I know we all cant afford them Versace but we all agree they look pretty good.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now we all laughed when he plated his hair and held it in pig tails, who’s laughing now?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pac and Aliyah’s style was just on another level, words are not enough.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Two women who I would say are in their own leagues are Lauryn Hill and Missy Elliott.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some TLC too without a doubt.

What’s Your Favorite Song Off Biggie’s “Ready To Die” Album?

“The greatest rapper of all time died on March 9th.”

Those famous lyrics said by Canibus when beefing with LL Cool J back in 1998 referred obviously to Notorious B.I.G. who was gunned down on March 9th 1997.

It’s been almost two decades since those words were said, and that statement still holds true! Despite all the talented rappers that have come up in the past 20 years, Biggie is still regarded as the G.O.A.T. The album that gave him all that critical respect was his debut set, Ready To Die.

As we remember the great rapper that Biggie was, what was your favorite joint off that album? Was it his great storytelling as heard on Gimme The Loot?

Or was it the classic boom-bap record Warning, with its famous “Who the heck is this? Paging me at 5:46 in the morning / Crack a dawnin, now I’m yawnin” line?

Or maybe you are like me and you think Juicy is one of the greatest Hip-Hop songs of all time:
