Our girls over at VIBE Vixen cooked up a cool list of throwback cuts that name-drop some of the freshest designer digs around. Check out five of their choices below:
The Notorious B.I.G. - "Hypnotize"
“I put hoes in NY onto DKNY (uh-huh)/Miami, D.C. prefer Versace (that’s right)/All Philly hoes, dough and Moschino (c’mon)/Every cutie wit a booty bought a Coogi (haaaaah!)”
Biggie was always name dropping designer brands in his songs. He made Versace and Coogi cool for the urban culture.
Mya (feat. Jadakiss) - "Best Of Me"
“And she don’t drink or know how a L look/Chanel look mixed with the Pete Arnell look”
Mya explored her bad girl side with this hit, while Jadakiss added that extra dose of fashoinable raunch’ to it.
Run DMC - "My Adidas"
“My Adidas/walked through concert doors”
The entire song is an ode to the famous brand which is still bringing in numbers with its three famous stripes.
Nelly (feat. Kyjuan, Ali, Murphy Lee) - "Air Force Ones"
“I said give me two pairs/I need two pairs/So I can get to stomping in my air force ones”
Air Force One sneakers were the thing to wear in the early 2000s, and Nelly did everyone a favor by creating this ode to still iconic footwear.
Jay-Z (featuring Beyoncé) - “’03 Bonnie & Clyde”
“But girlfriend, work with the kid/I keep you workin’ at Hermes, Birkin Bag/Manolo Blahnik, Timbs, aviator lens/600 drops, Mercedes Benz/The only time you wear Burberry to swim”
The power couple’s first hit together was equipped with brands that are more popular today than they were 10 years ago.
