Nicktoons in the Trap House
I wrote about 90s/00s references in today's hottest hip hop (from Lil Uzi Vert's Spirited Away t-shirt to Offset's diamond choker) and what they say about rap's obsession with youth as a status symbol.

Today’s newest generation of rappers are embracing and flaunting their youth with the sort of 1990s to 2000s nostalgia that only someone who barely remembers those decades can pull off. They’ve got closets full of vintage Nautica and Tommy Hilfiger, hyperkinetic Skittle-colored aesthetics drawn straight from the Saturday morning cartoons, and heads full of dreams inspired by childhood nights sleeping on the floor in front of a big boxy television.
