rapper

Eazy-E

Eric Lynn Wright is Eazy-E, a member of the rap group NWA straight outta Compton and known as the Godfather of Gangsta Rap. He’s also known for his beef with mate Dr. Dre and producer Suge Knight.

Run-D.M.C.

Formed in the 1980s, Run-D.M.C. is one of the most influential hip hop groups, being the first of the genre to earn a platinum release on their album. The rap group consists of Run, DMC, and Jam Master Jay who got the shaft when it came to naming the group.

Eminem

On the Marshall Mathers LP, Eminem asks for the real Slim Shady to please stand up. All it really takes is hair bleach and a white tee to start imitating.

Nicki Minaj

Nicki Minaj is a songwriter and rapper known as much for her bubblegum outfits and music videos as her chart-topping singles.

Pharrell Williams

Pharrell Williams is best known for his involvement with The Neptunes and N.E.R.D. but is also well known for his collaboration with other musicians like Daft Punk, Robin Thicke, and Gwen Stefani. He’s also into fashion and made a statement during the 2014 Grammys with his homage to Canadian mounties.

Vanilla Ice

Try as he might to make a new name for himself, Robert Van Winkle, better known as Vanilla Ice, will always be remembered for such classics as “Ice Ice Baby” and “Ninja Rap.” While the rapper now dresses like a member of Limp Biscuit, it’s his hi-top haircut and harem pants of the ’80s that make his costume fun to imitate.

Flavor Flav

Hip-hop pioneer, Flavor Flav has stayed true to his style despite adding reality television star and restaurateur to his resume. Combining lots of “bling” with a giant clock necklace, copying Flavor’s style probably won’t score you a model like Brigitte Nielsen but it will have people asking you for the time.

Macklemore

Rapper Macklemore has an interesting fashion sense, favoring a mohawk, furs, and gold in his music video for Thrift Shop. But if you really want to replicate his look, head to the nearest Goodwil and wear whatever you get with the twenty dollars in your pocket.

Ninja from Die Antwoord

Ninja is one half of the South African rap-rave group Die Antwoord. Together with Yolandi Visser, they mix modern with outdated in both their music and their fashion, to create their own… unique style.

Yolandi Visser from Die Antwoord

Yolandi Visser, aka Yo-Landi Vi$$er, fronts the South African rap group Die Antwoord with Ninja. Don’t be fooled by the pink and ponytail – her style is equal parts cute and nightmare fuel.
