In this week’s Wardrobe Wars we focus on two hip hop’s greats: Jay-Z and Pharrell Williams. Both artists have stayed at the top of their game for several years, while also racking up lucrative endorsements. Jay and Pharrell also recently celebrated 10 year milestones for their respective companies: 40/40 Club and Billionaire Boys Club.
But the similarities end there. Jay-Z, who just dropped an already platinum album, “Magna Carta Holy Grail”, has a more tailored style, opting for sleek suits and crisp button down shirts. Pharrell, on the other hand, embraces his love for casual-chic, rocking cutoff shorts with khaki blazers.
One thing’s for sure, these stylish men always step out in style. Take a look at this 20+ photo gallery and decide which hip hop superstar get’s your vote for best dressed.
