  • To follow the “rapper fashion” you need a large size sweatshirt (depending on the weather). This can have a word painted in the graffiti style.
  • Pants must be very large in size. You have to see the underwear to look for a casual and unconventional style.
  • XL or XXL shirts. A good “American gangsta” has to wear very wide shirts. In general, they use sports jerseys such as ice hockey, baseball, American football…
  • Rings, chains and pendants are part of the rapper’s style.
  • The shoes have a low sole and a large tongue, such as DC or Vans de Skater.
