We’ve noticed the new school of rap definitely has its own style and it’s almost a complete 360 of what us old heads remember rappers to look like. These days, nothing is off limits.

Rappers Kodak Black, Lil Uzi Vert, Quavo and Lil Yachty took their fashion choices to new heights when they hit the blue carpet for the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards held at The Forum.

Normally, it’s the ladies hitting the carpet with head turning looks, but these guys had everyone on notice for better or for worse:
