What Hip Hops Biggest Were Wearing 10 Years Ago and What Theyre Wearing Today

Diddy – aka Puff Daddy aka P. Diddy aka Sean John

Although he’s been on and off the hip-hop radar for a number of years, Diddy is the wealthiest figure in hip-hop with a combined fortune of around $550 million. His dominance of the urban market for the past 30 years is reflected in his clothing choices which he describes as “swagger, timeless, diverse.” His varied business ventures, from signing The Notorious B.I.G. to Bad Boy Records to his annual “White Party,” where guests are required to wear all white, have helped the New York native reach a legendary status not seen since the likes of Jay Gatsby. Diddy’s preeminence in the hip-hop world as both hit-maker and business mogul allows him to wear whatever he wants, whenever he wants.

Over the past 10 years, hip-hop has gone above and beyond the mainstream with its most influential contenders mingling amongst the elite in high-fashion circles. It’s hard to say what hip-hop fashion will consist of in another 10 years but the current trend of wearing only the most expensive brands seems to be stronger than ever. What do you think hip-hop’s best will be wearing 10 years from now? Will we see a return to streetwear or will high-fashion reign supreme?
