Producer The-Dream took it back to 1992 with his look at the Grammy’s yesterday, prompting a memorable critique from Jay-Z during the telecast.
The two took the stage with Frank Ocean to accept their best rap/sung collaboration award for “No Church in the Wild,” from Kanye West and Jay-Z’s “Watch the Throne.”
Jay Z, who was accepting his 17th career Grammy, gave the stage to Ocean and The-Dream, who was sporting a “Boyz N the Hood” baseball cap over a knitted hat featuring the black-and-white “Parental Guidance / Explicit Content” warning.
When it was Jay-Z’s turn at the podium, he looked at The-Dream and said, “I would like to thank the swap meet for his hat.”
“He likes to make fun of me,” The-Dream told reporters backstage before revealing that he got the hat at mall retailer Spencer’s. “[It’s] a really bad store for the young people.”
