Bape or A Bathing Ape is a Japanese clothing line originally founded by Tomoaki "Nigo" Nagao in 1993.
It was soon butchered by the likes of rappers like Soulja Boy when he released his album which included the song "Bapes".
Gay wangster: Man, I jus' got myself some bapes.
Friend: Shieeet, fo' real?
Japanese/American that actually knows a thing or two about hip-hop unlike some fakeass rapper: *nods head* your never gonna survive kid.
