You love hip-hop, so you want to dress as one of your favorite artists for Halloween. But there is no way to show up to a Halloween party as 2Pac without looking 2White. At best, you’ll look ridiculous, and at worst, you’ll look racist. Don’t worry, there are some alternative costumes that will let you keep it real while maintaining the spirit of Halloween…

Throw on your mom’s yoga clothes, some sunglasses and a big fake beard, and you’re Rick Rubin. Don’t take it too personally if everyone thinks you’re just a homeless guy.

Now that Eminem has bleached his hair again, blond guys can have their moment in the sun as Slim Shady. Throw on a white T-shirt and some jeans and you’re all set. If you’re not blond, throw on a hoodie, put the hood up and go as Eminem in “8 Mile.”

You really need to have a lean body to pull a Machine Gun Kelly costume off, but otherwise it’s simple: A backwards black cap, black jeans and a chest full of tattoos (you can always paint those on). Mumble to yourself and tell everyone that’s you “rapping really fast.”

5. Mac Miller

Just walk around in a fitted cap and sweats. Boom, you’re Mac Miller. Bonus points for sipping a turkey sandwich milkshake.

Another costume where you need to be in shape and draw on tattoos…or just get inked with the real things — what guy doesn’t want an eagle permanently flying across his chest?

8. A Juggalo


Halloween’s your big chance to not shower for a week and wash your candy down with a bottle of Faygo. Your wildest dreams have finally come true.
