A History of Versace in Hip-Hop

Pharrell on The Clipse's "Mr. Me Too" (2006)

Lyric: "Up in Donatella crib, me and like ten hoes"

When he dropped this line on The Clipse single, Pharrell wasn’t just saying it. The Virginia-born producer, rapper, singer, and fashion designer has been close friends with the Italian designer for over decade. As such he’s dined with her, partied with her, and yup, hung out in Donatella’s crib. More importantly, the song served as a reminder that ten years after ‘Pac and Biggie,  Versace was still a force within hip-hop.
