You could come out of the "Celebrity Club" 4am and go to Dap's and drink Champagne and buy some more clothes …..

Jedi Mack says:

I remember that era of the mid 80's to early 90's when Dapper Dan's was trendy. He reinvented fashion, however hearing him say that the middle class people did not go to his store because his clothes did not cross over at that point is not accurate. Middle class people could not afford his clothes plain and simple.

New American says:

Hip hop wasn't born out of gang culture, gangs were around long before hip hop originated however hip hop definitely started in the streets. Not everybody from the streets is part of a gang, they may be part of a "crew" but not everybody is part of a gang, big difference………

Fred Fisher says:

What do you mean you couldn't buy a house until the 80's in Cali, I'm from the Bay area and all my family own there houses since the 60"s.

Yo back in the 70s 80s dudes would not tell you where they got their gear from. They wanted to be the only one or among the few that had it…Yo my man where you get that color Adidas jacket? " I can't tell you that homeboy" then walks off…
