A History of the Bucket Hat

Monie Love (1990)

As a member of the Native Tongues Posse, lovable British rapper Monie Love made a memorable appearances on the Jungle Brothers' "Doin' Our Own Dang" and De La Soul's "Buddy" before releasing her own hit "Monie In The Middle." Her Down To Earth album cover displayed trail-blazing taste in fruity-colored bucket hats—a good twenty-plus years before streetwear shops became super-saturated. You've gotta love a girl who knows how to wear a bucket hat.
