Self-promotion will always be a must in hip-hop, especially if you’re pushing your own product outside of music. So, a certain Brooklyn rapper dropping bars about his signature sneaker through Reebok was par for the course. In fact, the beginning of the 21st century saw fashion brands cozy up to hip-hop artists. And if companies didn’t come a calling, those same artists created their own (Rocawear, Phat Farm, Baby Phat, Sean John, Ice Cream, Billionaire Boys Club, BAPE, Vokal, Apple Bottoms, etc), flooding a market already dominated by beloved hood staples like Mecca, Ecko, FUBU, and Enyce.

And even though the throwback jersey trend was put in a coma, there’s no denying that for a portion of the 2000s, we were committed to Mitchell & Ness and their overpriced, oversized jerseys—complimented with durags (tied or untied), a Yankees fitted, grillz, and an iced-out chain and watch by TechnoMarine. And Velour jumpsuits were a chef’s kiss.

We were rooted in everything oversized, actually. White (or pink) tees and jeans two or three sizes too big were commonplace on the corner or in the VIP section at the club. Eventually, the masses in the mid to late aughts grew up and evolved, adding both fitted designer button-ups and jeans to the closet, adding some grown man ish to their style.

How Much Does Sheetrock Cost?

Sheetrock Cost



  • Sheetrock typically costs between $12 and $20 per panel, and the national average is $15 per panel.
  • The exact cost of sheetrock depends on factors such as home size, panel size, panel thickness, sheetrock type, installation method, location within the home, and finishing.
  • Sheetrock offers many benefits, including affordability; durability; resistance to fire, mold, and mildew; numerous customization options; quick installation; and easy maintenance and repairs.
  • A handy homeowner may have the skills required to hang panels of drywall or sheetrock, but it’s often easier to leave the job to a professional who has experience with this project and can ensure the installation is completed safely and to code.

Whether it’s a living room revamp, a bathroom rebuild, or a bedroom remodel, sheetrock plays an important role when it comes to transforming living spaces. Also known as drywall, sheetrock is the main building component of interior walls and ceilings. It provides a smooth and even surface that can be finished with paint, wallpaper, or custom textures. Interior spaces often look incomplete or exposed before sheetrock is hung.

It’s not just about looks, though. Sheetrock also helps insulate against sounds and temperature changes while contributing to the overall structure of a home. Without sheetrock, a house remains a bare shell. For such a fundamental component in construction, sheetrock is budget-friendly. According to Angi and HomeAdvisor, the national average sheetrock cost per panel is $15, falling within a typical range of $12 to $20. This guide explores some of the most common factors in determining sheetrock costs, tips on saving money on installation, and questions to ask a drywall contractor before starting a project.

Factors in Calculating Sheetrock Cost

As with costs in any home construction project, sheetrock costs can be influenced by various factors. The following are some of the most important factors to consider when homeowners are determining costs for a sheetrock project, though it’s important to keep in mind that national averages may not always align with local costs.

Home Size

While there are other factors to consider, home size is one of the most important to remember when homeowners are estimating sheetrock costs. The larger the home, the more square footage of drywall is required to finish the job. This directly impacts material costs.
