At the recent MTV Video Music Awards, the world witnessed a new fashion trend that has many Hip-Hop heads scratching their heads — Jeggings.

Otherwise known as the lovechild of jeans and leggings, Jeggings are a hybrid of denim and spandex loved by teenage girls, stick-thin fashionistas, and somewhat surprisingly, Lil’ Wayne.

After his performance at the award show, writers and tweeters alike took to the web to make fun of the leopard pair of skin-tight Jeggings that Wayne was wearing. One enterprising person even created a fake Twitter account for the pants,@Waynes_Jeggings.

The irony of Lil’ Wayne is that he will wear a pair of jeggings but still attempt insult a foe by calling him a fa**ot in one of his lyrics. But then his own fans will question his sexuality for his fashion choices. Lil’ Wayne knowingly wears clothing that will bring about that attention, aware of the fact that in hip-hop, defending your masculinity is crucial to credibility. However it’s a risk he’s willing to take, perhaps a privilege of having a well-earned reputation of being a thug.

One thought on “Are Stereotypically “Gay” Styles Growing on Hip Hop Culture?

    Hip-hop and fashion have always been closely related. Don’t rope chains scream hip-hop just as much as the name Slick Rick?
    It saddens me to see that Wayne is being dissed for dressing differently.
    How long will the stereotypical version of today’s modern emcee exist?
    Change has to come sometime.
    I’m not saying I approve of his style or that I dislike it…

    But at least he has the balls to live life uninhibited.

    That’s why hip-hop is so whack right now.
    Too many rappers trying to create “different”, yet they’re using the same recipe…and they wonder why people call em’ cookie-cutter.
