To this day, rappers mimic Tupac's relaxed but aggressive style, though he hardly set out to be a fashion icon. He offered many variations on a general theme, but the most famous (and consistent) element of Tupac's look was his trademark bandana, always tied around his head. Sometimes in red, sometimes in blue, it generally accompanied drop-crotch pants, a wifebeater and a gold chain.
