There is definitely no shortage of brand references in hip-hop. In fact, we've heard just about it all—sneaker brands, alcohol brands, and even tech brands like Apple and its counterpart, Microsoft. But of course, there have also been plenty of mentions of fashion labels. Often, they name drop labels and designer names to prove their style is unmatched and to show their knowledge of the industry. In the '90s it was Versace, Tommy Hilfiger, and even Ralph Lauren. The 2000s, though, was the decade of Louis Vuitton.
Whether it was belts, Damier duffle bags, or Louis boat shoes, emcees were shouting out the French fashion house left and right. Cam'ron did it. So did Kendrick Lamar and 2 Chainz. Kanye West, the Louis Vuitton Don himself, certainly did as well—19 times, no less. LV has definitely enjoyed great success in the realm of rap, even to this day. So, in honor of the birthday of the OG himself, Mr. Louis Vuitton, we racked our brains to come up with The Best Louis Vuitton References in Hip-Hop.
