What’s cooler than being a hipster? Nothing!

Hipsters make “cool” sh*t not cool and make perceived un-cool sh*t cool. Basically, hipsters rule the world and hipster haters hate the fact that they’re not naturally cool and creative.

Hipsters get blamed for the U.S. census being miscalculated and basically everything that goes wrong in the world. OK, not really, but it’s fun to blame the hipsters for all the perils of the world.

“Gucci Gucci” rapper Kreayshawn is the newest hipster to reach mainstream success, which in the hipster world is sooo un-cool. In her hit song “Gucci Gucci,” Kreayshawn raps about how basic and trendy buying designer clothes is, making it the un-cool thing to do in fashion. 

Kreayshawn isn’t the only certified hipster to go mainstream with her music, Odd Future leader Tyler, the Creator makes fun of his hipster lifestyle.
