7. Kendrick Lamar
When you drop the No. 1 album of the year, people are damn well going to pay attention to the persona behind the music. Kendrick Lamar not only came out swinging with his major label debut album, but he looked awesome doing it. In fact, the pride of Compton was consistently rocking some of the year's best trends and best collaborations, proving that he's as savvy about style as he is about music. When you instantly place yourself in the upper echelons of hip-hop's canon, you better come correct in your steez as well.
