A History of Versace in Hip-Hop

2Pac ft. Outlawz "Hit Em Up" (1996)

Lyric: "Biggie remember when I use to let you sleep on the couch.../Now it's all about Versace/
You copied my style."

Per usual, ‘Pac didn’t just talk it—he lived it. The rapper took his friend-turned-rival Biggie to task for copying his style, and even shot a video for the brutal diss track. His lyrical nod to Versace was based on a real-life friendship with the designer and his sister.
