which rapper started what trend?
 

 
i think its kinda interesting to kno who influenced the things we wear, drive, etc,etc,etc if you kno who started what then add on and if any1 is wrong correct that n*gga!

few things i know

young berg got n*ggas rockin mohawks forreal, i aint never seen it till the s3xy lady vid prove me wrong

Jay-z
made it wack to rock a m-class benz or an x-class bmw, i remember back in the 90's when the baby mama benzez 1st came out n*ggas was drivin them sh*ts in video's but when jigga gave it that name nobody was coppin them sh*ts lol


is lil wayne the reason all these n*ggas got dreads?

dipset stay makin trends yet n*ggas love to hate em, few things i kno

n*ggas rockin pink
flashy a.ss beltbuckels
the rockstar look n*ggas fiend to rock today(v-neck tee, tight a.ss jeans, wallet chain etc.)
scarfes on dudes heads nowadays


busta rymes was the 1st to try at his own clothing with bushi back when got u all in check came out. Didnt go nowhere but after that n*ggas hopped the bandwagon


not only did Wu tang intoduce gold fronts to the east coast, mef and odb were the 1st n*ggas i seen around the world with custom fronts (name on the front, fangs etc) i think that plays a major part in these fronts n*ggas is rockin today

puffy introduced rap to white gold and platinum, bentleys and rolls royces not jay z, biggie started the cristal craze

im not sure but i think usher got n*ggas drinkin patron

mary j blidge is the reason why black girls rock blonde hair

thank fat joe when u get some free money in the club cause he started this "make it rain" sh*t i even heard cheney say it on that lil bush cartoon on comedy central

while cam may have made it a trend to wear pink, dudes in philly were rockin pink polos and sweaters before cam ever made that sh*t popular, just pointing that out, obviously philly isnt a rapper its a city but they were rocking pink sh*t before cam came with that whole sh*t.


i would say fab for the throwbacks maybe, but jerseys were always popular, but maybe he made throwbacks more popular

wayne the reason for dreads? no way

That's not true. Naughty by Nature was the first to have a clothing line, followed by Wu-Tang.

Wow....I think alot of these opinions are based on age of the listener and not the actual fad. Not trying to show my older age, but alot of these 'trends' were started as far back as the 70's.

Not to point out names...but the thread-starter himself (LBoogie)...gotta definitely do some research homie....

Rockin' Mohawks -> Young berg = NO...
Alot of the rappers of the 1990's that got Gold Chains & A Mohawk for short times were all HUGELY influenced by Mr. T. Even nowdays various singers/rappers have had mohawks before Berg. (Big Daddy Kane, Common, old school Proof, Diddy, Timbaland, all 3 members of Playa, Mike Shinoda, Kanye West, The Game, Chris Brown, etc-etc).

Jay-z -> it wack to rock a m-class benz or an x-class bmw = NO...
If yall would remember correctly since Volume 1, he was actually teaching cats the difference between Benzies and their price. At the time (especially in the mid-90s); the car to cop was a Lexus; and he made it COOL to go with a Benz instead.

is lil wayne the reason all these n*ggas got dreads? = NO...
Not even close...First off - ALOT of the island reggae & dancehall singers made that REALLLY popular in the 70's. Then, in rap, especially alot of grimey NY rappers worked the dreads into the mainstream in the late 1980s. Groups like Das Efx, Arrested Development, Digital Underground, Boot Camp Clik, etc-etc - all rocked dreads.

Dipset stay makin trends yet - Jeff hamilton sports leathers, patches, rockin pink, flashy beltbuckels, rockstar look, tight a.ss jeans, wallet chain etc.
First off it's called the 'Rock Star' look because it was glomorized by Rock Stars of the early 1980's. Bruce Springsteen, The Police, etc-etc made that look hot. I can't really talk for the leathers & pink (pink & purple have been 2 of the gayest fads in rap by the way, lol)...but Patches had been pretty hot through the Mecca clothing line during the early 1990s; around the time Larry Johnson was a star on the Charlotte Hornets. I had a NBA patch pair of pants...the season when the Hornets won their first playoff series (and I know that was waaaay before Dipset was formed).

Busta Rhymes - 1st to try at his own clothing with bushi = NO...
Actually No...I made a thread about this, so I'll try to find it. But, I know Naughty By Nature had Naughty-Wear in the early 1990s. Also, Wu-Wear started in the mid-90's as well.

Wu-Tang intoduce gold fronts to the east coast - My fav group, but NO...
I made a thread about Gold Grills as well -- MANY rappers out of Houston had Gold grills since the early 1990s. Nas can been seen with his as early as 1992. Older than that, vets like Slick Rick all had them in NY when they weren't big yet.


Puffy - introduced rap to white gold, platinum, bentleys, & rolls royces - I can't argue too much with that. At the time, when Bad Boy started it's hayday...Puffy/Biggie made it the trend that if a Billboard/RIAA Platinum plague is more worthy/successful than Gold, then we should be wearing platinum/not gold. As for the luxury sh*t...Bentleys, Royces, Helicopters, etc...yea, it was the East's way of competing with the violence-filled gangster rap of Cali --- so I'd give the props to Bad Boy, Dame/JayZ, and JD/So So Def, for all glamourizing the luxury sh*t at around the same time.

Not sure but - Usher got n*ggas drinkin patron = NO...
First off Patron's company wasn't established until 1989, and didn't start shipping nationally until 1991. I know Patron was a huge thing overseas and in the (mostly Asian) market of San Francisco before modern times. In the 90's Tim Westwood would sip it on his show; and various UK rappers like Dizzee Rascal & Solaar would talk about it in their raps. I know alot of the old school Latino/Chicano/La Raza rappers from Cali/Texas were big on it too (like Kid Frost, Gerardo, South Park Mexicans, etc) No clue by me either who made it big here on the East Coast tho.



....My best advice yall...is to do some researching and learn the history.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^damn you must be an old a.ss man im 27 tho you have good points let me correct you on some things, and simmer down homie sound a little mad for the net especially an older cat

but the point of it is, did mr-t puffy or all the n*ggas you mention have masses of non-white kids wearing mohawks to the club? or was the cat singing on the s3xy lady video that inspires millions of kids today?



about jay-z labeling m-class benzez as baby mama benzez:
doctorj:
If yall would remember correctly since Volume 1, he was actually teaching cats the difference between Benzies and their price. At the time (especially in the mid-90s); the car to cop was a Lexus; and he made it COOL to go with a Benz instead.


but were not talking about rocking a benz as opposed to rocking a lexus, were talking about rockin an m-class benz compared to an s or cl class benz, pay attention my man



is lil wayne the reason all these n*ggas got dreads? = NO...

calm down man if you were payin attention it was a question, mase had n*ggas rockin waves, d'angelo had em rockin braids so why not? think about it like this homie, you agree with what i say about puffy bringing bentleys to hip-hop, so did he invent the bentley? hasent it been around since before puff was born? so in that aspect who is to say lil wayne isnt the reason alot of n*ggas gettin dreads all of a sudden

your actually saying that dipset did not have n*ggas in the millions rockin this sh*t? im not talkin a n*gga here, a n*gga there, im talkin every n*gga that walks down the street nowadays? bruce springstein did that? wow, i mean i dont dress like that but damn........so cam didnt have n*ggas rockin pink either? lol how about kwame and polka dots? so he didnt do that too? i know alot of n*ggas hate dipset but give respect where its due, n*ggas love them to death

were not talkin about the west and the south we talkin about the east, new york my man you from here? new york not really known for that, and growin up in new york i can tell you from experience that it wasent no fu*kin nas that had n*ggas wearin fronts out here, sorry

lol are you for real my man? 3 questions i wanna ask you

1. tell me that any one of them n*ggas you mention got all these cats fiedin for patron in the club today, have you been to the club lately my man?

2. if you yourself dont kno who started the latest trend.......then why are you saying usher didnt start it?




im sorry man but who made you a mod? your arguments arent even valid no offense but i think you need to take a seat in the old folks hip-hop section im were talkin within the 90's/2000 genre if you havent noticed
