Height of Style: "Planet Rock" video
Signature Look: Multi-level mohawk, Indian headdress, wraparound glasses
Prescience has its privileges. The godfather of hip-hop in more ways than one, Bambaataa developed a look that was equal parts Funkadelic, UK punk, and Sun Ra, rocking tribal headgear and multi-layered mohawks with shutter shades a full thirty years before Andre, Cudi, or Kanye experimented with these looks. All hail the father of hip-hop's wild-style approach to fashion.
