Rappers wearing goggles?

Does anyone know why rappers are wearing goggles now?

I've seen a couple of music video where they're wearing Oakleys or some other shit

This actually started back in the 90s so it's nothing new. If I can remember some of the videos, I'll post them. If anyone else remembers, feel free to share.

Of course, RZA's Mason Aguirre 6.0 commercials may have inspired it recently...

Why did Pharrel wear Zoom Force 1's to a red carpet premiere? They're fucking stupid that's why and make shitty music.

Yeah, attention-craving, narcissistic pop people...

Remember Beyonce's binding shoes?

Odds are these companies are paying them to be seen in or name drop said product.I know a lot of drink companies pay to have their brands promoted.
