Just look at TV, magazines, etc. Pharrell started the whole trucker hat craze of a few years ago. And all races were wearing those hats. The Neptunes changed the sound of Hip Hop. You think Lupe Fiasco or his single, Kick, Push, (an ode to skateboarding) would be hot if it wasn't for Pharrell? Pharrell has too many hits to name and you sound crazy trying to doubt the man's popularity amongst Blacks. To be really, really honest, it's widely accepted that Ahston Kutcher started that horrendous trend. Why? Because he was a farmer from one of the square states (Idaho or something) and had been wearing them all their life... Pharell would have definately gotten it from him, or in fact, all the punkers who had been wearing trucker hats since the Misfits starting touring a long, long time ago.
