A History of the Bucket Hat

Schoolboy Q (2013)

Although LL Cool J can now be seen hatless on television each and every week, Schoolboy Q seems to have taken Todd James Smith's place as the hip-hop star who's never seen without his trusty bucket. "I kept buying bucket hats," he explained in a recent Complex interview. "Next thing I knew, I felt like I didn’t look right without one." As a member of the Black Hippy collective, it's only fitting that Schoolboy Q popped up this spring wearing a tie-dyed bucket that would've made Jerry Garcia proud.
