For decades, hip-hop has always been influenced by fashion and, for years, brands have always used celebrities and entertainers to sell product. Because fashion changes so quickly, you don’t remember ads unless something about it truly spoke to you.
Let’s go back in time to 1998, before ACG and Polo boots were popular and everyone’s go-to boots were Lugz. Master P, Silkk The Shocker and C-Murder were all enlisted to serve as the face of the urban boot brand. Not sure if them being featured in the ads or helped boost sales, but we do know it made everyone want to cop a pair.
Do you remember seeing this ad back in the day? Did it make you want to go out and cop a pair?
Other than being one of the hottest southern rap groups at the time, there’s no real definitive reason as to why or how the trio of No Limit soldiers got the deal with Lugz.
Maybe it was there long list of hits such as, “Make’em Say Uhh” and “Bout Dat.”
