Christian Audigier, the famous designer behind Ed Hardy and Von Dutch passed away today. Back in January he was diagnosed with cancer. Hip-hop once had a weird love affair with the Hardy brand. Christian's t-shirts, trucker hats, and jeans with rocker chains were seen on seemingly every rapper during the mid-aughts. Everyone from Jim Jones to Lil Wayne to Lil Jon rocked fits with rhinestones and skulls.
Today we pay homage to this period of time. Also, Kevin Federline is on this list because, he too, had a rap career. So spray your Ed Hardy cologne one more time, and make a toast with that Ed Hardy wine you've been waiting to open. RIP to a legend in the fashion game. He cashed out, and you must respect the hustle. Check out this throwback list of rappers wearing Ed Hardy.
