Top 3 Hip Hop / Urban Trends That Women Hate
I love the Fashion of Hip Hop
I LOVE Hip Hop…the talent, the creativity, the culture…we (the artists, the fans, the bloggers) have a very unique way of expressing our love for it. Some of these ways result in some of the dopest trends the fashion world has seen. For instance, some of my current favorite trends are
- Re-re-re-Invigoration of the Snap Back Cap
- Shades at Night
- Skinnies (men and women)
- Diamond Teeth (How Baller is that, Kanye?!)
- Full Sleeve Tattoos
But some urban trends go way too far. And after seeing one too many rachetety trends brand itself as the culture of hip-hop, I’m finally fed up. Here are the top 3 Worst Hip Hop Trends That Women Hate.
1) Tattoos on Your Face
Everyone knows that the best way to assert your gangsta is to get a tattoo on your face, right? WRONG!!! This is a stupid trend that needs to DIE! Please do not join the likes of Game and his Butterfly-turned-”LA” tattoo, Rick Ross and his Cazal logo tattoo, or Gucci Mane and his “ice cream” tattoo and get a tattoo on yo FACE!. First of all, lets think about how stupid each and every one of those tattoos are. Really, Rick Ross, you just goin get a logo tattooed on your FACE??? Ok, Right, thats a good idea.
Fellas, just as an FYI, when you are in a new relationship with a woman and you’re in the “getting to know each other” phase, us women have a couple of imaginary role-playing exercises (scientists call these “thought experiments”) that we do to help us decide if we want to take it to the “next level”…we imagine what it would be like to wake up to you in the morning. If our imagination is full of smiles, morning laughs, and jokes with the smell of morning dew as the sunlight fills the room, then you’re winning. You dont need anything to remind us of your eye boogies, terrible morning breath and ashy callused feet — cause that’s exactly what the thought of waking up to a crusty face tattoo will do — remind us of your eye boogies, terrible morning breath and ashy callused feet.
2) Sagging pants
I know that asking men to wear their pants on their waists with a belt is a bit much but how is it OK to let your WHOLE ass out? No seriously, Lil Wayne and Big Sean, why do you want to show the world your whole asses. I have male friends that enjoy having their asses out in public but they also wear women’s clothes and perform a song or two in front of an all gay crowd. Someone please explain to me how wearing your whole ass out is cool? No seriously, please.
3) Exposing your Untoned/Out of Shape Bare Chest
Rick Ross has made the list twice as the main offender in this category. Am I wrong if I’m offended that some of my favorite artists have gotten so arrogant that they think that they are outside of the law of rational human behavior as it pertains to staying in shape???? If you want to be out of shape, then by all means, go ahead, Ill still respect you and like your music. But if I want to see an artist that I like perform a song that I like then I expect that said artist would respect the health of my eyes. Where, Rick Ross and Waka Flocka Flame, do get the nerve to take off your shirts and insult my retinas when all I want to do hear good music????
So, I hope that I don’t see any non-famous men trying to pull any of this off. Keep in mind that most of these “trend-setters” have million of dollars that make most women forget what it is exactly that they are looking at and the fact that it’s a trend that they hate!
