Rap music has had a long and varied history, with its origins said to begin as far back as the 1950s with the beat-style poems of Gil Scott-Heron, to the 70s with MF DOOM and his lyrical wizardry. In many ways rap is a style of expression that draws heavily on the past and pays homage to it – in both musical elements but also style and fashion.
When considering rap jewelry, we must consider which artist or movement was particularly influential in the rise of wearable hip hop jewelry? Over recent years different rappers have built their distinct brands off of referencing or recontextualizing designs from music and culture’s past.
From Biggie’s iconic crown pendant to Gucci Mane’s love for classic R&B references such as 50 cent’s chain based off Janet Jackson’s classic Rock with U video, rap jewelry seeks to capture nostalgia. Flashy pieces representing wealth may have become more prominent within contemporary times due to broader access through technology advancements making customizing fashion easier, though classic hip hop pieces continue to remain popular amongst the modern generation. From Miami Vice jackets covered with patches to statement chains hanging low around streetwear apparel – these trends flow over into hip hop jewelry today and represent an era when grandeur merged ethos’ from old school rappers like Fabolous, LL Cool J and Nelly.
Although it is tough to give one definitive answer as far as who has been the most influential rapper when it comes to hip-hop jewelry – many renowned artists have certainly made their mark on fashion culture in various ways.
