Trends come and go, and nowhere is that more evident than in the world of hip-hop style. From its early days of tracksuits, bucket hats, and dookie chains to the '90s heyday of gangsta leans, baggy jeans, and Timberlands, it's evident that today's crystal-mask-clad, skirt-wearing rappers are a far cry from what was considered dope when Tupac and Biggie ruled the airwaves. The line between high fashion and hip-hop is more blurred than ever—just look at how guys like A$AP Rocky rub shoulders with lauded designers like Alexander Wang and Jeremy Scott. The fashion landscape of the rap world is absolutely nothing like it was in 1993. Is it better? Arguable. Is it weirder? Definitely. Let's take a walk down memory lane and look at 20 Ways Hip-Hop Style Was Different 20 Years Ago.
