Recently I’ve been inspired by a lot of Old School Hip Hop and Reggae, and the music has influenced my style. This week’s look is all about remixing the past. For example, my over-sized fur jacket, stone wash jeans, and the silk scarf head tie were all a part of the 80′s – 90′s Hip Hop style. I remixed these classic items by adding my black and gold bag, brown rope belt, statement chain and the black boots. Some of the tracks I’ve been listening to lately are Supercat ‘Ghetto Red Hot’, Sly & Robbie ‘Bad Girls Dub’, Doug E. Fresh ‘Freaks’ and Heavy D ‘Somebody For Me’.
Yesterday, I came across this Major Lazer, Beastie Boys and Santigold remix of ‘Don’t Play No Game’. It’s a great mash up of Hip Hop and Reggae. I did a style shoot inspired by the Beastie Boys album Hot Sauce Committee Part Two in a previous post, so I was glad to hear this Dancehall inspired version of the single ‘Don’t Play No Game’. I love the Beastie Boy’s classic Old School Hip Hop flow mixed with Major Lazer’s Reggae Dancehall tunes… it’s a nice blend. Check out the mix and free download below. Hope you enjoy the music & my Hip Hop/ Reggae inspired style!
