Hip hop fashions have come a long way from the B-Boy look of the 80’s and 90’s. As Taylor-made suits marries more and more with hip hop it’s not unusual for rappers to be the best dressed gentlemen in the room.
Big Sean, who is surely making a name for himself as a fashion trendsetter recently spoke with Vogue magazine and revealed the people he most admired fashion-wise as a youngster.
“I really liked Nas. I thought his style was really good. Definitely Tupac and Biggie. To this day, I still rock a Rolex ring, obviously I got that from Tupac and Biggie. Also Jay Z, Kanye, and Pharrell too. Growing up, all these guys had an impact on me. I see a version of them in myself today.”
Continuing, Sean praised some rappers’ iconic looks.
“Cam’ron in the pink was something special. Nas with the clean, minimal look—Carhartt jacket, the NY Timbs, the army green—that was great. Tupac when he wore the Red Wings jersey. Tupac also embraced layering, the leather vests over jerseys. Biggie and Puffy with the suits. All these things left an impression.”
