Urban Fashion Icp Clothing Vs. Hip Hop Clothing

If you were asked to describe traditional hip hop clothing in one word, chances are you would say baggy. At least that would have been how to describe hip hop clothing ten years ago, when gangster rap was in and the expected wear was baggy jeans, a baggy jersey, and drooping chains. Today, hip hop clothing is much more fashionable.

For example, Kanye West is such an icon when it comes to hip hop clothing that hes even designed his own fashion lines. At that didnt come at the expense of his music 2010s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy topped many critics and fans best 2010 year-end list, and is expected to win every category its nominated for at the GRAMMYS this year.

So if mainstream hip hop artists like Kanye West are innovating both sonically and fashionably, what about superstars of micro hip hop genres like horror rap? The one group thats nearly a household name in this genre is Insane Clown Posse, and ICP clothing is in some ways different, in some ways similar to mainstream hip hop clothing.

Of course, not all hip hop artists are as obsessed with fashion as Kanye West is. In fact, there are many rappers today that dress the same way they did 10 years ago, placing emphasis on loose clothing. This is how ICP clothing is meant to be worn. ICP clothing wont win any awards for innovation, and ICP clothing wont be seen worn by models walking down any runway. Instead, ICP clothing consists of big jean shorts or baggy jeans for pants, and even larger tops like plaid button ups or hanging T-shirts.

The one garment thats become ubiquitous in hip hop clothing, the wife beater, can also be seen on Shaggy 2 Dope every so often as well. So if this was what most rappers were wearing in the 90s, what makes ICP clothing today different than the hip hop clothing worn by other rappers whose style has changed little? One thing: The hatchetman.

The legend of how the hatchetman a hatchet-yielding cartoon character came to be the universal symbol for all things ICP or Psychopathic Records is well known to all, and the guys have made a killing by branding every form of ICP clothing imaginable with the hatchetman. You can find ICP clothing like hatchetman jerseys, hatchetman T-shirts, hatchetman jeans, hatchetman hats, hatchetman bikini tops, hatchetman beanies, etc. The list of ICP clothing thats embroidered with a hatchetman figure goes on and on.

So the moral of the story is while ICP clothing may not have advanced tenfold since the 90s like some other rappers and their hip hop clothing, it doesnt matter because ICP has been able to leverage their hatchetman logo and sell a boatload of ICP clothing as merchandise. Because thats the case, it doesnt matter that the ICP clothing style hasnt changed much!

Icp Pants What Hip Hop Clothing Will Insane Clown Posse Think Up Next

If someone were to tell you that the fashion line of Insane Clown Posse clothes included ICP pants, would you believe them? Hip Hop clothing has gone to extreme lengths in the past, but the line not to cross is usually drawn after socks and underwear. But ICP pants? Would they even be functional?

Yes and yes. If youre curious as to what they look like, just consult our friend Google. Baggy, black, sometimes tattered and almost always containing some chains and straps, wearing ICP pants will plant you squarely in the horror rap / Goth crowd, and probably not the crowd thats usually associated with hip hop clothing. ICP pants will never be mistaken for skinny jeans, and therefore you will never be mistaken for a hipster.

Oh, and one minor detail. Just like all Insane Clown Posse clothes, ICP pants are branded with the unmistakable Juggalo face paint outlines. For the uninitiated these symbols on the ICP pants may appear to be the famous Greek muses of comedy and tragedy, but that is far from the case.

Just like many hip hop clothing items, ICP pants exist to 1) Promote the band, and 2) Give Juggalos another way to promote the band, and 3) Make Juggalos even more recognizable to other Juggalos around. Unfortunately there are no ICP pants sold in the Insane Clown Posse clothes section of the online store right now, but theres no telling what you could find elsewhere on the Internet.

Insane Clown Posse clothes are nothing new. Of all the major players in the rap and underground games, most of them dabble or have dabbled in hip hop clothing merchandise at some point during their careers. But, it is rare that those who design hip hop clothing go to the extent that Insane Clown Posse Clothes do. Aside from the branded ICP pants, what other Insane Clown Posse clothes could you imagine?

Lets start with the basic hip hop clothing, because most of it has already been conceived by mainstream artists who design very different gear than the Insane Clown Posse clothes worn by Juggalos. However, that said, ICP clothing probably includes any item you could imagine being produced by these types. So, think outside the box!

HmmmInsane Clown Posse clothes for your feet already exist (hatchetman branded ankle-highs in black and red), as do shoes (skater shoes in black and white with different color hatchetman are some of the most common Insane Clown Posse clothing items. What about a collared shirt? The ICP pants might not be dressy, but a button up with a hatchetman could add some flavor to the Insane Clown Posse clothes collection. A Juggalo should be well groomed every once in a while!

Who are we kidding. Every imaginable hip hop clothing item that ICP could ever design has already been designed. And really, this ICP clothes talk is really besides the point. So long as the band continues making great horror rap that Juggalos enjoy (ICP pants or not), the latest ICP hip hop clothing will be the furthest issue from their minds!
