Questlove may not be the first stop when discussing fashion in hip-hop, but if there’s one person who knows their history, it’s Questo.
In Vintage Frames’ latest installment of The History Of Eyewear in Hip-Hop, Questlove takes us on a journey through time – featuring eyewear throughout the early days of hip-hop and before his iconic afro.
The Roots drummer and mainstay on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon discusses the history of the iconic eyewear brand Cazal and their place in past and current culture. Without a doubt, the large box-framed Cazals made famous by Run-DMC shaped the ’80s landscape of eyewear fashion and MC Hammer’s asymmetrical frames had their own impact – Quest was around for both.
Check out Questlove’s eyewear nostalgia session, soundtracked by The Roots, ”The Seed (2.0)” in the video above.
