Over the past few weeks, it seem like all anyone is talking about is the connection between the hip-hop and fashion industries. Recent events bringing these two worlds together include Kanye West’s line for French label A.P.C. and Jay-Z‘s song “Tom Ford” off his latest album. But this isn’t a new relationship. Fashion and hip-hop music go way, way back. The unlikely duo have been linked since hip-hop went mainstream in the 1980’s. Rappers started wearing designer clothes in their music videos and at press events, and the rest is history. Nowadays, it’s not uncommon to see artists like Drake at fashion week, or Nicki Minaj sitting front-row next to Anna Wintour. This connection goes deeper than celebrity clothing lines and endorsement deals. Hip-hop music has carved out its own distinct sphere in the fashion industry. The music genre inspires trends and the trends inspire the music artists work. For example, Tupac Shakur walked in a Versace fashion show in 1996 and Karl Lagerfeld and Snoop Dogg teamed up on a music video together. Click the slideshow to see just how connected the hip-hop and fashion industries are.
