Respect to Chance the Rapper, The 5th Element of Hip Hop Culture.
His style is vintage 1980’s/1990’s hip hop. He decided to bring this style back because he believes that the style was more created than it was bought. Jalen believes that a style should be more “created” and not “bought” meaning that anybody can buy something and just wear it but it’s not their own style, but if you buy a jacket and customize it to fit your personal taste then it becomes an original style. He also believes that the vintage hip hop look best represents being free and rebellious. The style mostly reflects the around-the-way homeboy who don’t like to spend so much money for one outfit but keep it cheap and simple and lastly, it’s Black fashion. The high top is an homage to all the hip hop legends who rocked it before and it represents embracing your own hair, no matter what it looks like.
