Chances are that if you’re in tune with your hip hop history, Dapper Dan or some form of him has come across your path, whether he is the main topic of discussion in a hip hop fashion dissertation (as he should be) or you may have just seen his clothes worn by the greats like Eric B & Rakim, LL Cool J, and Big Daddy Kane.
