Keeping It Real?
Even Bob Marley 'dressed up' on occasion in Rude Boy attire.
People liked to look cool - they just weren't willing to go broke doing it.
It's the look one gets while being sized up as someone is deciding whether jack you for your ish.
White shoes, blue jeans and black jackets?
Anyone could afford this look.
Sure, Adam Ant looked like a broke cast member of the Pirates of the Caribbean but Duran Duran adopted a more effete high-end look.
Is Hip-Hop still relevant?
Is it still 'Keeping it Real'?
Nope, not when modern 'street fashion' is causing many fans to go broke trying to emulate their favorite artists.
