A History of Versace in Hip-Hop

Rick Ross "Pirates" Video (2013)

When Ross mouths the words “Christopher Wallace of my time,” he means it. To make the point clearer, the song's video features the obligatory speed-boat-with-a-pretty-girl-by-his-side scene—a trope Biggie pioneered in his "Hypnotize" video. Ross also reclines in an unbuttoned, gold-accented, black Versace shirt, a sartorial sample of Big Poppa swag.
