Rappers serve as style inspiration for a large majority of their fans. The clothes they rhyme about and wear end up as a visual reference to what was cool during their given era of hip-hop. While many aspire to obtain the lofty standards rappers such as Kanye West and Jay Z set with their discussion of what's on their backs, very few can actually obtain the exact pieces their favorite rapper wears.

Whether it's because of the price range or it's a one of one sample, rappers sport clothes we can't get our hands on, and it can become quite frustrating.
