Over the last couple of years we've seen a number of dope collaborations between clothing brands and hip-hop artists. Most recently, "Happy" singer Pharrell Williams collaborated with Japanese retailer Uniqlo for a special collection, and while the crossover of fashion and hip-hop is hardly a new phenomenon, the partnerships between clothing brands and artists' continue to grow with time. For brands like Supreme and Alife some of their most symbolic garments have been created thanks to their collaborations with Three Six Mafia, Cam'ron, Prodigy and several other big name artists. To cast some light on the evolution between rappers and clothing brand collaborations, we took a look back at 10 of the most significant collabs to ever hit the market.
