  1. What hip hop did for polo is wat title should be …… y’all media people always tryna take black culture and make it seem like white are responsible for it 🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️

  2. I think the last time Polo was cool was Swag Surfin’.
    Right now a little video that I bring up to most of the bros when I see them wearing polo says ‘I’m Gucci, you Polo’. This video is hilarious and is the sole reason I quit wearing Polo. It’s amazing how a little kid talking on the other kid influenced me to stop buying Polo.

  3. Y’all got that backwards. Swear Complex is dumb as 💩. Never gives credit where credit is due, but claims to be “influencers” when they’re the biggest followers in pop culture. What’s really corny is they’re more than likely trolling for attention or some type of viral moment. Trying to get hip hop culture type people into a frenzy. Like musicians that want attention so they mention ion Beyonce or Jay Z for free promo

  4. KILLING OVER CLOTHING THAT DOESN'T HAVE YA OWN NAME ON IT OR EVEN TAGGED TO YOU FINANCIALLY…SHIT THIS 80'S GENERATION FAILED THE NEXT…COON SHIT AT IT'S FINEST BUT IF ANYTHING THIS ADMIRATION SHOULD BE CREDITED TO RALPH LAUREN AND HIS GAY ASS

  5. Polo is for real classy niggas trying to impress a lady. Wearing hypebeast shits (Supreme, Bape, Givenchy, Balenciaga, Gucci, OFF-WHITE, Fear of God and VLONE) is for 12 year old kids that want to impress a girl but won't get laid (even though I respect those kids nowadays husslin' and grinding get bread).
