All week long, we have been reliving the golden era of hip-hop; specifically, the late ’80s and early ’90s years that Yo! MTV Raps ruled the airwaves. If the nostalgia or the awesomely bad style moments hasn’t convinced you to tune in to tonight’s The 40 Greatest Yo! MTV Rap Moments, perhaps the then and now style evolution of some of your favorite celebrities will. In the most visible transformation, Ice-T traded in his pimp wardrobe for more refined wares. And Salt-N-Pepa retired the spandex (which we kind of loved) in favor of chic dresses.
You can watch the 40 Greatest Yo! MTV Rap Moments special on VH1 tonight at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT.
Looking back at the style choices of the Yo! MTV Raps era sends us on a trip down memory lane. How cool were overalls in the ’90s? They’ve even tried to make a comeback (to which we plead please, folks, let them die!). Seeing Tupac in his custom made T.H.U.G. L.I.F.E overalls or Bobby Brown with his slanted high top fade reminds us of a time when rap was fun. As cool as these styles seemed then, today they would almost certainly make the what-not-to wear fashion list.
It’s all in good sport that we poke fun at the awesomely bad style moments of the Yo! MTV Raps era. Speaking of which, our two-hour special The 40 Greatest Yo! MTV Raps Moments airs this Wednesday at 7 p.m. ET/PT. In the meantime, reminisce on the styles we loved then and chuckle at now.
