Fashion Flashback: N.W.A.
N.W.A. hands down is one of the most important groups ever to pic up a mic (not to mention two of the members Ice Cube and Dr. Dre have gone on to become legends). Ushering in a new era of gangsta rap, they put the West Coast on the map, changed the look, attitude and sound (as well as the geography) of this genre forever. They had very specific Cali-centric fashion too, think Oakland Raiders Starter snap-backs and jackets, knit beanies and of course Eazy E’s infamous Locs. Vh1 has been running there NWA – The Worlds Most Dangerous Group all month and it got us to thinking….. More of Comptons’s finest after the jump…..
