6. Wu Wear

Back in the day, when people used to still buy physical albums, you would come across an order form in the CD cover on which you could order apparel from your favorite artists. Wu-Tang Clan certainly did this and, given their popularity at the time, it made sense for them to start a brand. They even had their own Wu Wear shop in their hometown of Staten Island. Though the brand slowly dissipated over the years, it recently came back as Wu Tang Brand Limited, featuring designs with slick song references that cater to the streetwear crowd. Given that many indie clothing brands have produced tribute shirts over the years, it makes sense for it to return to the market, albeit for hip hop's new generation.
