The 25 Most Stylish Rappers From NYC Right Now

12. Q-Tip

Borough: Queens (St. Albans)
Signature style: A non-stiff suit with a touch of funk. 

Q-Tip has been a mainstay (and influencer) of New York City hip-hop for close to 25 years. There's not many artists that can boast that fact. Tip may have sported funky, African, and sports-inspired gear in his early career, but as the years went on, he also found a solid tailored game, too. In fact, the rapper's style landed him a L'Uomo Vogue photo shoot in 2011, in which he sported a top hat and tuxedo (a look many rappers would struggle to pull off).

With that said, what makes Tip so stylish is that his look is completely his own, much like his demeanor on the mic. Yes, he hangs out with Kanye West and the rest of the G.O.O.D. Music gang. Does he dress like any of them? No, but he looks equally as great.
