From Presidential Rapper Apparel to Rap-Inspired Air Fresheners

These weird rapper innovations are a true reflection of how massive the genre has become and all the kooky places it will go. In the late 1970s, DJ Kool Herc pioneered the hip-hop genre and now it has become a global phenomenon.

No one would have expected that music expressing the culture of the streets would become so big that there would be items like gangster cookie cutters. Also, with outlandish clothing items like the deceased rapper lingerie and presidential rapper apparel, people can express their appreciation of worldwide global icons like Kanye West, Jay-Z, Tupac, Lil B and The Notorious B.I.G.

One of the biggest sources of weird rapper innovations comes from the Harlem-based rapper Cam'ron, who frequently collaborates with various brands to create outlandish items like rapper-inspired air fresheners.
