If you loved Hip Hop in the 80’s or just love looking at all the old pics ¬†of you’re older cousins favorite rappers you know this man’s influence. He merged the high class world of New York fashion with the Afrocentric styles of Harlem World and created the looks that everyone in New York had to have if they wanted to be taken seriously in the world of Hip Hop and beyond. LL Cool J, Eric B and Rakim, BDP, boxing champs and drug dealers all coveted this man’s creations. He was called DAPPER but he invented FLY.
