Costume Conventions of R&B

The genre of R&B/Hip-Hop regularly features a lot of 'bling', this comes in the form of jewelry and usually symbolizes wealth, success and power. Many costumes featured in R&B/Hip-Hop take inspiration from American sports such as basketball or baseball. Baseball caps are also often used symbolising the fact that the genre itself originated in the States, this can be seen in Jay-Z’s music video, Empire State of Mind. This video belongs to the R&B/Hip-Hop genre and uses many images that are iconic of New York.
