Crave Moore on hip hop artist fashion trends in 2022: Music and fashion have always offered mutual support. Hip-hop music, mostly enjoyed by younger generations, tends to bring new fashion trends in-game. From multi-finger rights, gold necklaces, and sunglasses, up to tennis shoes, hoodies, flannel over shirts, and large spectacles – these are all good examples of classic hip hop fashion. Tank tops have always been present in the hip-hop world. But now, sweater vests are also coming back, but not only in that monochrome and simple form. From shades of blue and green mixed with pink and gold, up to tight pieces layered on T-shirts. Sleeveless might not be the most common yet, but it will be far more present than before.
Rap was built on sampling, so that aspect of the genre isn’t going anywhere. Drill has become very popular, and it’s now beginning to be full of songs with samples, from R&B hits from the 1990s and other sources. The way the older songs are chopped, flipped and reworked changes from era to era, but the goal remains the same: make a banger out of something that already exists. The way some fans complain about their use is tiring, and speaks more to the realization that the tracks those fans loved in their youth are officially old now. Either way, the sampling keeps those songs alive and introduces them to a new listener base that may not have come across them otherwise.
It’s clear that one of the main features of trap is synthesis. This makes it more difficult to clean up after, but also gives it a heavy sound without samples or other sounds to interrupt this flow. The bass is strong and accompanies the hi-hat which is both fast paced and complicated. The cloud rap genre has been distorted and otherworldly. From hints of distortion at the base to a reverb-drenched percussion, these tunes provide a more psychedelic experience. With its unconventional lyrics and sound effects, it’s worth checking out to see if it sparks any creativity.
Hip-hop is huge and all encompassing both as a style of music and culturally. When a genre has a lot of artists and fans, that leads to more people being passionate about it. But with that passion comes with complaints and hang-ups, some of which can be unfounded at best and offensive at its worst. Everyone has thoughts on hip-hop and the direction it’s going in, and that’s fine, but certain issues are silly, and not worth the time put into them. As it comes to hip-hop, a lot of the thing rap fans hand-wring over have been there for a long time. In other cases, new things pop up that fans take issue with. Either way, it’s time to let them all go.
