A History of Versace in Hip-Hop

Talking Master P Doll (1998)

Full camouflage suit—check! Gold-plated tank medallion—check! Shiny pair of ‘Versace’ shades—double check! How hot was the Versace brand in hip-hop circa 1998? Even a rap mogul's talking doll had to have Versace shades? Fifteen years after they first hit stores, we still can’t decide if these limited edition Master P dolls were wonderful or weird. Neither could shoppers. After moving 6,500 units, the line was discontinued. Today you can purchase a Percy Miller doll for $40 on eBay.
