Hip-hop and R&B embody their own styles as much as they do sounds, and hats play a part of the sartorial side to either genre. From Ne-Yo's fedoras to Busta Rhymes' Dr. Seuss hat, these are the hats that became like limbs to the hip-hop and R&B artists who wore them.
LL Cool J is one artist who wears many hats — literally and metaphorically. The 2015 host of the Grammy Awards recently landed a gig co-hosting a forthcoming show on Spike TV, Lip Sync Battle, with Chrissy Teigen. Peep the gallery to see which other hip-hop and R&B artists love their headwear, and hear LL Cool J reveal how his name changed from Ladies Love Cool J to LL Cool J in the clip.
