Rappers dropping fashion references in their lyrics is certainly no new thing, but as a species that thrives on the intersection of music and fashion, each new style name-drop-laden track is just as exciting as the last. The latest addition to this extra-special breed of song? Wiz Khalifa's "Old Chanel" which features Smoke DZA. The hook, as expected, reps the iconic Karl Lagerfeld helmed label (though we're not sure why Wiz didn't opt for "vintage" as opposed to "old"), but there are even more fashion shout-outs on this heavily vibing, head-bopping track. Peep our five favorite references which we illustrated below (and are perfect for Tumbling)!

If 2013 SXSW is any indication, the bucket hat will be even bigger this spring and summer.

It's difficult to pinpoint when and who exactly started the late '80s/'90s bucket hat trend. Was it LL Cool J circa "Going Back to Cali" or Nickelodeon's Salute Your Shorts? Thanks (or no thanks) to sparse documentation of that initial rise of the fisherman's chapeau, the world may never know. One thing is for sure, though: the hat with the 360 brim is experiencing a major present-day comeback, and nothing has made that more abundantly clear than the stages of this year's SXSW music festival. Bucket hats of all shapes and sizes made their way onto last week's Austin stages by way of Usher, Kid Cudi, ScHoolboy Q (of COURSE), Joey Bada$$, IamSu, ScHoolboy Q again, Smoke DZA, and Prince SAMO.
