90s Hip Hop Fashion

90s Hip Hop fashion had reached heights nobody could have ever guessed. The late 80’s - early 90’s was dominated by Funky combinations of Overly Baggy Suits, Throw Back Sports Jerseys, Bandanas, Lugz Boots, Overalls, Flashy Reflective Outfits Skully Caps, Stocking Caps (Du rags), Vests, Khakis, Camouflage Suits, Windbreakers, Nike Air Force 1’s, Buttoned up Striped and Plaid Shirts, Backwards Hats and Clothing, Visor Hats, Bucket Hats, T Sweat Suits, and Hip Hop Hoodies.

During this era, rappers would go on to rebrand and popularize large name brands like: Tommy Hilfiger, FUBU, Karl Kani, Polo Ralph Lauren, Nautica, Kangol, Champion, Nike and Calvin Klein. 

Hip Hop has ought to take partial credit for universalizing the baggy look. Breakdancers started sporting looser outfits to make it easier for them to perform their moves; then harem pants, tracksuits and sweat suits eventually grew looser and looser.

By the early 90’s, the B-Boy/B-Girl scene had their spotlight highjacked when the Gangsta Rap era came into popularity. With racial tension spiking during the Rodney King riots, we witnessed political/Black Activist/Militant like groups emerge all across the United States of America. With NWA at the forefront of the Anti-Government movement, later came big names like: Wu-Tang Clan, Public Enemy, Bone Thugs ’N’ Harmony, Boot Camp Clik and A Tribe Called Quest. As the new found image made itself comfortable in the culture, a new personality of Hip Hop had been established. A rugged and raw appearance grew popular, baggy camo suits and fatigues was the new hard look and tracksuits with fur jackets became a thing of the past.

Knowledge, Power, War and Peace was the theme of the age. With these subjects in mind, It became base context for the Conscious Hip Hop scene. As the Gangster look became popular catching worldwide media and political attention, there was another dynamic of Hip Hop that was operating; and this was “Lyrical Rap”. Dope Beats, Feel Good Lyrics, Fun Videos (Sometimes Goofy) and almost always, a message. This wave marked the peak of what many call the “Golden Age of Hip Hop”.
