Wiz Khalifa is defending his eccentric fashion choices. Wiz’ attire has sparked much confusion amongst fans and avid Hip Hop heads on his choice of attire.
The “Medicated” rapper’s choices of fashion have him occasionally wearing skirts and leggings. These items of clothing are commonly worn by women.
Wiz addressed his fashion choices via IG with a photo of himself wearing a skirt and pair of leggings.
“All of my outfits fot stage are a complete expression. Might not be wut i would wear on the street because i feel like iss once in a lifetime. Not like i need to explain to you swuares. Half u niggas wish u cld wear this shit #ktz,” he wrote in the post’s caption.
A social media firestorm erupted earlier this week after a photo surfaced of the “Work Hard, Play Hard” rapper wearing leggings.
Chicago artist CashOut063 viewed the image and questioned Wiz’s choice of fashion. He shared the image onto his Twitter account, writing, “THIS WAT THIS SHIT COMIN TO HUH???”
Other Twitter users were equally disturbed by Wiz’s leggings.
Hotti By Nature @wattabaddbytch commented, “Y He Got On Thot clothes Tho.”
In September, the Wiz posted a photo of himself to his Instagram sporting a skirt.
“Timeless sleezy ass pic are you kidding me. Selfie sleaze of the year now,” the caption on the photo read.
Wiz is among a throng of rappers to wear a dress.
Kanye West famously wore a black leather skirt and leggings during performances in his Watch The Throne” tour and a Sandy Hook benefit concert.
West’s attire drew wise cracks from fellow entertainers Cam’ron and Chris Brown.
“Pyrex and a skirt? Sh*t ain’t adding up and if you co-sign I’m blocking you. Straight up! I’ma have to save us,” Cam’ron wrote on Twitter.
Chris Brown commented on a Nicole Bitchie blog post, writing, “That sh*t suspect. Can’t get with that swag. N*ggas gone be wearing heels next.”
ASAP Rocky is another such rapper who has an affinity for dresses. The “Peso” rapper had social media buzzing after making an appearance on 106 & park wearing a dress.
The rapper, born Rakim Mayers, later referred to the ensemble as a long shirt.
Dipset rapper and fellow Harlemite Freeky Zeeky found ASAP’s clothing choice comical.
“Where is that person that was like ‘106, wear the dress, put the leggings on. I’m telling you the world gonna love it,’” Freeky said during an interview with VladTV. “Who says that? Where is that person at? Get him out of there… then where is your brain at?
Lil Wayne, who often catches flack for his eccentric style of wardrobe, commented on the dress trend in his “Started From The Bottom” freestyle from “Dedication 5” mixtape, rapping, “Yall don’t want no problems up in here/These niggas wear dresses and yall call me weird?”
Aaron McGruder, creator of The Boondocks animated series, predicted the dress trend would take hold in Hip Hop after producing the infamous “Gangstalicious Part 2” episode that appeared in season two.
Gangstalicious, voiced by Brooklyn rapper Mos Def, portrays a closeted homosexual rapper in the episode who starts a line of feminized clothing that he frequently sends to Riley.
