They maybe wanted to make a statement about the tone-deaf early 2000s, full of ghetto crossover culture and country hip-hop mish-mashing. What they ended up doing was playing the cot damn fool on the red carpet in a denim tornado.

Seriously, were we all worried that these signifiers like jewels and bandanas and other outer stuff could — somehow, some way — replace what was real? These two look like an ad for Soulja Boy’s walk-in closet. Doubt they can “steal hip hop” more than it’s already been bought and sold.
