"SORRY, BUT HIP HOP HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH FLAT TOPS AND CHAINS, LET ALONE A FLOPPIER MOP(?) CHAINS HAVE BEEN USED IN FASHION DATING BACK YEARS, IN THE 30'S ZOOT SUITERS WORE THEM OVER-EXAGERATED DOWN TO THE KNEE, THE SO CALLED FLAT TOP WAS FROM THE LATE 40'S & 50'S IMMORTALISED BY MAC CURTIS, ITS BASICALLY A CREW CUT WITH A FLAT TOP AND A CLUMP IN THE FRONT, & POMADE ON THE SIDES (THIS LOOK BECAME POPULAR AGAIN DURING THE LATE 70'S ROCKABILLY/HEPCAT REVIVAL) ANY WAYS THE 'HIP' IN HIP HOP PROBABABY STEMS BACK TO THE TERM 'HIP CAT' WHICH CAME ABOUT DURING THE PROHIBITION, WHERE 'ZOOTED' JAZZERS WOULD HAVE A FLASK OF LIQUOR ON THERE HIP, HENCE HIP CAT WHICH THEN CHANGED INTO 'HEP CAT' LATER IN THE 40'S. I'M ALSO VERY CONFUSED WHY THE TERM "ROCKABILLY" HAS BEEN USED TO REPRESENT THE ENTIRE ERA, AND THIS CURRENT TREND, THIS IS VERY CUMBERSOME, ROCKABILLY IS A BASTARD MIX OF MUSIC IE WHITE HILLBILLY AND BLACK BLUES, IT WAS NOTHING NEW IN THE MID FIFTIES & BEFORE FOR BLACK AND WHITE MUSICIANS INFLUENCING EACH OTHER, ROCKABILLY AS A MUSIC WAS DIRTY, AND FOR THE MOST PART WOULD NEVER BECOME 'POP' AS IT WAS UNCONTROLLABLE, BESIDES BY '57 IT WAS PRETTY MUCH HISTORY, WHITE ROCK 'N' ROLL (WHICH TO THE UNEDUCATED MEANT HAVING SEX IE BLACK SLANG) HAD TAKEN IT'S PLACE, COMPARE THE 'SUN' LABEL OF '56 TO '58-'59 AND YOU WILL SEE WHAT I'M ON ABOUT. DON'T GET ME WRONG, IT'S GREAT TO SEE KIDS HALF MY AGE LISTENING TO THE MUSIC I LOVE, BE IT 'REAL' RHYTHM 'N' BLUES, SWING 'N' JAZZ OR ROCKIN' SOUNDS FROM THE 50'S & 60'S AND SOUL ETC. IT'S TIMELESS MUSIC, NOT "RETRO" ITS BEING PLAYED NOW! WITH THE CHANGEING MIX OF CLOTHING, PEOPLE WILL ALWAYS WANNA ADD OR SUBTRACT A PIECE OF CLOTHING, OBVIOUSLY THATS HOW FASHION IS INFLUENCED, FROM THE STREET."
