Oversized fur coats have been the trend of winter 2015 among rappers residing or visiting the cold North East region. While long exaggerated fur coats have always had a place in hip-hop, the last few years saw a decline in the trend.
This winter rappers decided to bring back the chinchillas and the minks to match with their apparel and footwear. The trend reached its peak during All-Star Weekend in New York City, when it appeared that every rapper was covered in fur from head-to-toe. Some even took the mink obsession to another level by rocking a matching fur top with their coat. Needless to say, rappers proved that minks are an essential part of an hip-hoop artists wardrobe during the winter.
