Watch your back, it seems Rihanna has been getting ‘hood on us lately.

For the past month post-Grammys, the Barbadian beauty has done a complete style switch-up when running the streets in some questionable, yet still trendsetting ensembles.

Yesteday she tweeted #gangstagothgeisha with pics of her puffing smoke from the set of the new “Princess Of China” video and earlier this week prior, stepped out twice rocking bandanas tied on her head in a nod to gangster rapper Tupac Shakur. Did we mention she has ‘Thug Life’ tattooed on her knuckles?

So what’s next RiRi, throwing up gang signs?

Pay attention Nicki Minaj.

The rising style icon’s clever high-low mix of streetwear and hi-end might be transcending Ri to become the fashion industry’s new “gangsta boo.”

Want to get in on Rihanna’s new street style? Pile on a gold necklace, several dainty gold rings and stiletto nails in dark or bright colors to contrast an otherwise chic outfit.
