For an entire decade, spanning from the mid ’90s to the second half of the ’00s, Hip-Hop style centered on three staples: a fitted cap one size too big, a XL white tee and an even bigger throwback jersey to go over it. Thankfully, the ’90s resurgence making its current return is adopting the trends with a little more refinement. The caps are actually fitted (see: New Era Low Profile caps), the tees don’t quite touch our ankles and as for the jerseys, they’ve probably aged the best as we’ve come into this new generation of rap.

Of course, no one was influencing the throwback jersey wave harder than the flyest rappers in the game, seen early on guys like Mobb Deep and The Notorious B.I.G. during their debuts — R.I.P. to Biggie and Prodigy, respectively — and continued on during the flashy era of Dipset, G-Unit and the diamond-rocking Roc-A-Fella crew. Even now, Tyga found time to show love to Kobe in the visuals for his latest top ten Hot 100 single – more on that later.
