Visible Influence: Rappers in Kilts, Rappers in Costumes, Rappers in Suits
Andre 3000 is a true hip-hop style pioneer. Before Kanye West was making waves for rocking a skirt, Andre 3000 was wearing one in a music video. He really pushed the boundaries of what a popular rapper was "supposed to wear" versus what he himself wanted to wear. While he didn't exactly embrace high-fashion brands or break into the fashion industry in the same way as guys like Kanye or A$AP Rocky, he still played a huge part in showing rappers they didn't have to dress or look a certain way to be "hip-hop."
