Year: 1987

The God MC Rakim brought drug dealer chic to the video shoot for "I Ain't No Joke." Nobody was smiling but we're sure they were admiring. His tracksuit and gold ropes were flamboyant, something both classic and priceless. They were items that you were tempted to touch, but always seemed elusive. The allure of the items holds to this day, where artists like Drake still take advantage of the effortless cool that comes with a tracksuit and gold jewelry.
