Hip-Hop Clothing Athletic Wear Movement:
Champion, Mitchell & Ness, Reebok, Nike, Stall & Dean
Hip-Hop has long since loved team jerseys because they represent a regional affiliation. The athletic jersey movement reached a pinnacle over a decade ago and took a big hit on the chin when Jay-Z declared he no longer wore jerseys. Okay, I don’t exactly credit Jay with the authentic in-game sportswear demise. I blame it on FUBU and their ubiquitous ’05’ jersey which was worn mostly by people who still smoked crack.
