Description
My new men’s series `BOYZ N THE HOOD` is inspired by the 90s rapper. When hip hop music first developed in the late 1970s, not many people knew about it.
It was created in the poorest districts of New York City by African American and Latino teenagers as part of a hip-hop scene that also produced breakdancing and graffiti art.
The old school area in the late 80s was very present in my childhood. With this portrait of iconic rapper, I want to come out from my childhood, to the right now. 90s nostalgia has been driving the fashion scene for several years now, and 90s hip hop fashion has been central to that revival. Today, in the 21st century, hip hop became a major genre of popular music.
