Rappers and Scarves – The Tipping Point

Did anyone else notice how hip-hop artists decided to take the words ‘Protect Ya Neck’ quite literally this cold weather season. This year, it was the style icon / mogul-status types that spent a few extra hundred on the luxe scarves instead of that extra pair of bullshit general release Air Force Ones. I am sure there are hordes of B-level rappers that already digging through flea markets for bootleg Louis V and Fendi scarves to wear next year. And for the record… I am not talking about the hipster pashminas – aw hell no!

Since scarves have been around for centuries, I feel weird calling these dudes ‘neck accessory innovators’, but here they are:

Pharrell:

Note the W)Taps Chukkas. Much respect to a rich artist that will rock rather inexpensive sneakers. Well, I guess they are exclusive.

Kanye:

Note the KAWS Chomper Teeth πŸ™‚
