A History of the Bucket Hat

Illa J (2013)

As the younger brother of the late, great J Dilla, John "Illa J" Yancey carries a heavy legacy on his shoulders. Luckily he wears a clean bucket hat on his head. In 2013, Yancey Boys (aka Illa J and Frank & Dank's Frank Nitt) released the video for "The Throwaway," a fast rap keeper over a previously unused J Dilla beat. Illa J looks seriously suave rocking the bucket.
