Fresh Out The Runway: Hip-Hop’s Fashion Stuntas.

Ranging from classic to contemporary while embodying iconic touches that render each look edgy, the key elements displayed in hip-hop beaus and beauties’ outlandish arrays standout beyond the cliche. Through a genuine desire to look their best while showcasing their unexampled rendition of being well-dressed, each unrivaled fashion feature displays that each one of these sui generis gentlemen is a unique creature. Not only do artists have style within their words, their suits, ties, dresses and gators are also always creme de la creme. Due to the excess of cash that comes from hip-hop musicians dishin’ out nouns, syllables and verbs, hip-hop and fashion are two of a kind, and some of the flyest dressers in the game have even gone on to create their own fashion lines. Here’s five of the hottest verses about fashion from some of hip-hop’s finest dressed.

“Independent with the demeanor of an R&B singer

Naked ring finger, M3 Beamer

Champagne Range, Triple white Jag

Closet full of brand new clothes and handbags

Alexander McQueen, Prada, Gucci, Chanel

D&G, BCBG, Versace, Louis and Bebe

You ain’t needy, greedy or easy as these other breezy’s.”

Drake & T.I – “Fancy”

“Rocking, rolling, swagging to the max

My bitch a fashion killa, she be busy popping tags

“She got a lotta Prada, that Dolce and Gabbana

I can’t forget Escada, and that Balenciaga

I’m sipping purple syrup, come be my Aunt Jemima

And if you is a rider, we’ll go shopping like mañana

Her attitude Rihanna, she get it from her mama

She jiggy like Madonna, but she trippy like Nirvana

Cause everything designer, her jeans is Helmut Lang

Shoes is Alexander Wang and her shirt the newest Donna

Karan, wearing all the Cartier frames

Jean Paul Gaultiers cause they match with her persona.”

A$AP Rocky – “Fashion Killa”

“Perm in your hair or even a curly weave

Witcha New Edition Bobby Brown button on your sleeve

I tell you come here, you say meet me half way

Cause brothers been popping that game all day

Around the way you’re like a neighborhood jewel

All the home boys sweat you so you’re crazy cool

Wear your gold in the summer with your biking shorts

While you watching all the brothers on the basketball court

Going to the movies with your homegirls crew

While the businessmen in suits be hawking you

Baby, hair pumping, lip gloss is shining

I think you in the mood for wining and dining

So we can go out and eat somewhere

We got a lot of private jokes to share

Lisa, Angela, Pamela, Renee

I love you, you’re from around the way”

LL Cool J – “Around the Way Girl”

“Bang, pop, pop, this thing go pow

Dolce crop top, my play clothes now

Those Céline wedges are way downtown

Best dressed up, better, you best dressed down

Oh, it’s me, fella, the banji gets out”

Azealia Banks – “Van Vogue”

“I made Jesus Walks, I’m never going to hell

Couture level flow is never going on sale

Luxury rap, the Hermes of verses

Sophisticated ignorance, write my curses in cursive

I get it custom, you a customer.”

Jay Z & Kanye West – “Otis”
