Bring It Back - The High Top Fade

Life goes in cycles we all know that. So it's great to see the high top fade hairstyle making a comeback. This was one of the more eccentric hip hop fashions of the last 30 years, and still looks fresh today in 2010.
Everything "old school" certainly seems to be in vogue at the moment. Right now every country in the world has a b-boy crew, and graffiti writers - who would have thought that 20 years ago? It was not that long ago that everyone said vinyl was dead (ha ha how I laughed). Now sales are on the up once again as nostalgia kicks in, and was it DE LA SOUL that said "everybody wants to be a deejay everybody wants to be an MC"? Ain't that the case!
We're bringing it back to that old school rap - the days of bubble goose leathers, Cazals, gold chains, with high top sneakers to match. Let's not forget raccoon hats and Africa medallions. Those were the days my friends... when HIP HOP was truly "hip" and kids on the street decided what was fresh.

The Hi Lo Cut with 2 half moons!!..

Leather Africa Medallions to boot..I remember the days, SoulIISoul + 4star General 1st check. Then all the cheap boutiques on Oxford street went and cashed in on it, with 1001 crap varieties in different colours. A real Zulu Nation piece, if you could find one was the schit.

Peace my brother!
