Trendsetter

 

LL was always fashion-forward — from his signature Kangol in the '80s and his leather TROOP ensembles, to his one-pant leg rolled up — the ladies loved him and the fellas envied his swagger. So it was a genius match when LL linked up with the Queens-bred urban sportswear line FUBU (For Us, By Us). He helped launch the Black-owned brand through one of the first rapper-clothing line partnerships in hip hop, and famously shouted out the company while wearing one its hats in a Gap commercial in 1997.
