Old School Rapper Costume
Please Hammer, don’t hurt ‘em!
The ‘90s were a crazy time. People were wearing spandex bike shorts for fun and fashion. You thought Hypercolor shirts and shorts, which changed color with your body heat, were the coolest thing ever, until you wore one to the high school dance and realized that all they really did was show all your friends how much you were sweating from your armpits while you danced with Becky to “More Than Words”. Cross Colours hit the streets and Kris Kross hit MTV, resulting in hundreds of kids across the country getting suspended from school for wearing their jeans backward. Vanilla Ice popularized the nightmare ‘90s version of the ‘80s mullet, complete with a “rat tail”. Zubaz were a thing.
And then there was MC Hammer, whose biggest critical contribution to pop culture was to make rap a commercially-viable genre in a time when it was considered too hardcore for the general public, but who will forever be known for ushering in an era of pants that make it look like you were born with an embarrassing and potentially uncomfortable pelvic disability! These low-hanging pants, however, were both fashionable and functional, as demonstrated by some key signature MC Hammer moves. Did it look weird to wear parachute pants with shiny black dress shoes? Yes. Did anyone who was cool in the ‘90s remotely care? No! Wanna know why? Because Hammer was cool. He was so cool that he could pull off pants like that and still be cool.
