On Halloween day, the hip-hop community came through with some creativity.
While many in the hip-hop community spent the weekend celebrating Halloween, there were others who opted to show out closer to the actual date. In case you missed it, our first photo recap featured many costume highlights from Jay-Z, Nas, Swizz Beatz, Jermaine Dupri, Usher, Rae Sremmurd, and more. However, plenty more costumes surfaced in the interim, so we spent some time collecting some of the most memorable get-ups below. While my colleague covered the athlete end of the spectrum, I had to go ahead and include LeBron James in this recap as well. He went too hard to not be included twice.

I started doing Costume Couture parties years ago mainly cause I always heard my fam / friends/ peers say they’ve NEVER dressed up for Halloween as an adult. Not only that, most people said they would never put on a costume. Most of our people just think they’re too cool to be putting on a silly outfit. I wanted to change that, at least with my friends. It’s fun as fuck and when everyone does it, the person who ISN'T dressed up is now the uncool one. Lol. I’ve always done NY with LA etc and never did it elsewhere. My sis @kellyrowland and I did it last night and killlllled it!! Costume Couture LA will now happen every year. Thanks my bro Tim for holding us down. Thanks to all fam and friends who came.
