The sign highlights the intersection between hip-hop and the iconic White Sox cap

Feb 7, 2024

William 10 mins ago 189 CHICAGO – As Chicago urban historian Shermann “Dilla” Thomas would say, “Everything dope comes from Chicago,” and one of the items at the top of that list is the Chicago White Sox baseball cap – the central point of a documentary presentation and an organized round table. by the baseball organization Monday evening. Presented at the Bronzeville Winery, the documentary – previously broadcast in September – was shown to the assembled crowd. A panel discussion followed – featuring influential figures in Chicago hip-hop and media – that delved deeper into the intersection of hip-hop culture and the White Sox. “The (White) Sox brand as a whole is something we don’t have to overdo,” said Bree Specific, one of the panelists and WGCI radio personality. “It’s like a legendary relationship. The more Chicago grows and develops, the Sox stay the same. Chicago White Sox announce SoxFest will return in 2025 Regarding the team’s logo design, Bree Specific described it as simplistic, but impressive and bold to the point that it has permeated hip-hop culture around the world, ending up at the top of the heads of rappers like Ice Cube and NWA, while also having the ability to embrace rappers like the next generation – whether they’re Chicago locals like Chance the Rapper and Vic Mensa, or Kendrick Lamar on the West Coast . “I think a legendary logo goes a long way,” Mensa, another panel member, said Monday. “It’s a very solid foundation because the associations are taking a leap forward. You have a person who associates him with Ice Cube, but Ice Cube also has a huge influence on Kendrick Lamar, and Dr. Dre also helped create Kendrick Lamar, in a sense. At this point, it becomes something of a founding element of the aesthetic language of the culture. When Mensa sees the hat or logo, he says there is an association attached to the many statements that have accompanied wearers of the hat since the club’s rebranding in 1990, but when it comes to him, his display goes beyond a fashion statement. It’s a manifesto of courage, something that is emblematic of everything that makes the South Side, the south side. “It will always make me think of the South Side,” Mensa said. “I just think it’s harder – black and white, you know.” Of course, after the name change in 1990, the South Side expanded nationally in 1991 after Ice Cube donned the new Sox cap in his Steady Mobbin’ music video. White Sox make two trades, acquire 2 OF, RHP and draft pick “I didn’t want to go straight back with the Raiders look,” Ice Cube said in the documentary. “We were looking for something cool to stand out. We always loved black, but when the Sox changed colors… It spoke to us in a strange way… It’s edgy. It’s a new flavor. According to the documentary, in 1990, NewEra manufactured 9,000 White Sox hats. The following year, 1991, the hat company produced more than 60 times that quantity, or more than 544,000. It was from there that the popularity of the hat took off. In 1992, Dr. Dre released an all-time classic hip-hop album – The Chronic – and in the music video for the first single, Nothin’ But AG Thang, Dr. Dre also donned the Sox cap. Despite the White Sox cap’s growing popularity at the time, Ice Cube did not say he put the Sox cap on. global ” in the documentary, and rather differed from “Big Hurt” and its early South Side successes as a further contributing factor to the hat’s rise as an iconic fashion item. “I really appreciate that. But like I said, we were winning,” Frank Thomas said in the documentary as he pounded his fist into the palm of his hand. “The culture was winning. We were the new team coming up and we continued to win a lot. Nine Cubs and White Sox prospects make 2024 MLB Top 100 The rise of the ’90s White Sox behind Thomas, Bo Jackson, Tim Raines and Robin Ventura, combined with the rebellious mentality of top hip-hop artists, cemented the hat’s popularity in both baseball and hip-hop culture. whoops. modern time. Once Ice Cube, Dr. Dre and Eazy E started wearing Sox hats, everyone wanted to look like their favorite rapper, and once Thomas and Jackson stole the show on the South Side, both cultures have mixed to create a universal and monochrome logo. emblematic of both – the Sox cap.
