Y’all know about the Harlem street legend Aberto “Alpo” Martinez who ran the drug game in the streets along with Rich Porter and AZ in the 1980s. Out of the three, Alpo was always the one known for his flashy jewelry and lavish designer clothes made by another Harlem legend, Dapper Dan. One of the most iconic piece is the Louis Vuitton Snorkel. Also worn by Cam’ron in the movie Paid In Full when he played as Rico.
Dapper Dan said rappers would wait outside of his store to see what the hustlers were wearing so they could go and cop the same stuff.
