Meek Mill and Puma are releasing the "24K Gold Pack" in one week. But when will the gold fad die? We think it's time

It's been over a year since Trinidad James' "All Gold Everything" took the internet by storm (not to mention how the song got so played out many have dubbed the Atlanta rapper a near career-ending "one hit wonder"). Fast forward to 2015, and in one week Meek Mill and Puma are set to release the "24k Gold Pack" of the popular Puma Suede available in hi-top version (gold) and a silver low-top version as well.

Hip hop and accessorizing particularly with jewelry are a common pairing since the genre's inception, but in the past few years we've seen an explosion of gold-themed items from headphones to bikes to... rolling papers??? The hip hop uniform is all too cliche these days: black denim, some sort of black top (commonly adorned with the atrocious leather sleeve fad), a pair of Timberlands, and an egregious amount of gold.  Throw in some cheetah print and now you're getting there. Notice the trend for yourself. Scope the gallery below:
