Year: 1987

The Beastie Boys aren't just important figures in hip-hop for their music, but also their look. They may have been dismissed back in the days for embracing the frat and punk aesthetics, but they had a style all their own. Mike D's Volkswagen medallion wasn't prominently displayed in the video (like so many rapper chains), nor it was all that expensive, but it certainly left an impression. We can't help but see Rick Ross and the MMG crew sporting iced-out Maybach logos and think it was Mike D who set the trend.
