Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne‘s iconic dreads are still reportedly intact, however, the Young Money boss is donning a face injury this week in New Orleans.
According to reports, Wayne has caught the media’s attention just from rocking his hair pulled back during Super Bowl Week in New Orleans
In the photos, it looked as if Wayne had cut off his locks, but MTV News contributor Kelley L. Carter — who watched Tunechi perform at a pre-Super Bowl party in New Orleans and even posed for a picture with the “A Milli” MC — said Weezy’s wig is still intact. “I’m pretty sure he still had his dreads and they were pulled back in a ponytail,” she told us Friday (February 1). “In fact, I’m like 1,000 percent positive. I would’ve noticed that.” Carter sent MTV News some exclusive photos that she snapped that ultimately debunk the hair-chopping theory. The angle mixed with the manner in which the rapper had his hair tied back did make it seem as if he had gotten a haircut and was wearing a mini-afro, but the picture was deceiving. (MTV)
Aside from the hairy situation, Wayne has also raised a few eyebrows from rocking a new face bandage.
Weezy was, however, rocking a brand-new scar on his face that he got while skateboarding but covered up with a bandage. According to Billboard, Wayne performed onstage for nearly an hour at Thursday’s EA Games party, rocking songs like “John” and “She Will,” both from his 2011 Tha Carter IV LP. (MTV)
Initial speculation of Wayne slicing off his dreadlocks heated up the Internet early Friday (February 1).
We never thought this day would come. Lil Wayne has been growing his long dreadlocks ever since his career launched with the Hot Boyz back in the early 2000s, and while it looked like he cut them off, he actually fooled us all. The Carter IV rapper hung out with Big Boi yesterday, and it looked like he was rocking a new short-haired look, but he in reality, he is just growing out his dreads even more while they are pulled back.

Just a few weeks ago, Wayne inked a new facial tattoo onto his head.
You know what they say: “New year, new face tattoo.” At least that’s what Lil Wayne says. The rapper-turned-skateboarder decided to pay homage to skateboard company Baker the best way he knows how–by tattooing the word “baked” on his forehead. Weezy, who already has stars, a lightning bolt and teardrops (among other things) tattooed on his noggin, chose the area above his right eye for his new ink because… that’s the only place he has left?
