Fashion has long been a staple in Hip Hop, as far as I can remember. I often reminisce about the cool kids tagging their sneakers and stopping at the airbrush spot in the Colosseum in Jamaica Queens, personalizing their jackets and leather high tops to perfection. I remember how those same street kids inspired the likes of the big fashion houses like Tommy Hilfiger, who turns those styles into multi-million dollar profits, to which little credit was given for the true innovators.
