Why do so many criminals wear Yankee hats ? a simple thing called the “Jay-Z Affect” according to one criminologist. Basically because The Jigga man raps about wearing Yankee caps, he gives it “street cred” and that makes it a must-have accessory among “urban youths” which are the ones doing the crimes.
“The rapper Jay-Z has worn a Yankees cap for years — on his album covers and in his videos — and has helped turn the cap into a ubiquitous fashion accessory for urban youths (“I made the Yankee hat more famous than a Yankee can,” he boasts in one song).”
YEA HOV !!!!
