60 Gifts for the Hip-Hop Head

Pimped-Out Presents for the Aspiring Rapper in Your Life

— December 13, 2010 — Pop Culture
Whether your resident hip-hop head is embarrassing or intimidating, they're sure to enjoy something from this list of gangsta gifts.

These pimpin' presents will keep your hip-hop head g'd up from the feet up. From extravagant rapper-owned bling to endless amounts of shiny grills, better dust off your mic and turn up the bass for this badass holiday.

Implications - Though hip-hop was created as a form of escape for misfits and perceived enemies of society, it has now evolved into a widely well-received pop cultural movement that symbolizes youth, emotion and raw, unabashed expression. Hip-hop no longer belongs to the gangsters, but to the segment of consumers who intend to remain young and unapologetic forever, encouraging all to celebrate their differences as equals.
