“Fashion breaks my heart”
-Kanye Omari West
So what did Kanye West mean? What does he ever mean, but with this particular quote what was he expressing? The way the man dresses you would think fashion would be his love not breaking his achy breaky heart *Elvis Presley voice*. As I dissect and probe the quote, I realize, I understand his point of view. Fashion designers all alike are doing the same thing each season with their collections yet it’s the trendsetters and stylist of the world that are transforming the perspective of the fashion world; ESPECIALLY HIP HOP ARTISTS!
Hip-Hop artists have been changing the face of fashion for decades now, but in this year alone, certain hip-hop artists have taken style and fashion to new heights. These individuals’ influences in style and fashion have guided my style tremendously in 2015. I introduce to you the Top 5 Stylish Hip-Hop Artists of 2015!

Chris Brown’s style definitely stepped up 10 notches this year! His new album “Royalty” is pretty hot as well.

2015 was a huge year for the Kanye West protégé, Big Sean’s style of urban with professional pieces made for an excellent combo. Also, I must say he had one of the best rap albums of 2015: “Dark Sky Paradise”
