Back To Bucket Hats: EPMD at the 9th Annual Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival

Erick Sermon and Parrish J Smith, aka EPMD, aka the godfathers of hip hop’s incorporation of the fisherman hats (yes, there’s a difference between them and bucket hats), are back in biz this coming weekend via the 9th annual Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival. More than 30 years deep in the game, the innovative duo from Long Island, NY is credited with fostering the transition from disco to funk and rock break-driven hip hop beats. Pioneering cuts like “You Gots To Chill,” “You’re A Customer,” and “So Wat Cha Sayin” combined samples from acts like Zapp and Roger, Steve Miller, and Funkadelic.

EPMD’s 1989 sophomore album, Unfinished Business, featured the iconic Mercedes-Benz car hood and white fisherman hat cover art that solidified the accessory in the minds of hip hop fans for years to come. The two have became synonymous with the Gorton’s Fisherman steez since! Seeing as how everything runs in cycles, hip hop fashion’s 30-year wheel is currently on the reboot thanks to the reintroduction of late 80’s and early 90’s accessories like the fisherman hat and bucket hat. Everyone from Stussy and Supreme, to Schoolboy Q and Mac Miller can be seen sporting the functional lids. Credit it to the OG’s that did it first and come check them out live in Brooklyn this Saturday, July 13th. You can purchase tickets here.
