With a wave of artists like Jim Jones and T-Pain slicing off their iconic long hair in recent years, Atlanta’s Waka Flocka Flame has revealed the reason why he will never go for a shorter look.
In Waka’s perspective, he gains his strength courtesy of sporting dreads and also credits them for getting the girls to go crazy over him.
“Hell no, I ain’t never cutting these dreads,” Waka said in an interview. “Sh*t is strength, wisdom, you know what I mean? This is all my strength right here. I’m the reason why these girls love these dreads.” (Montreality)
Prior to cutting off his iconic dreads, T-Pain spoke on why a shorter look is a sign of growth.
SOHH: There was some excitement a [recently] over Lil Wayne allegedly cutting his dreads but it turned out his hair was merely pulled back. Any chance you would ever consider snapping off your iconic hair and going with a low-cut look? T-Pain: I guess we all have to grow up at some point in our lives. I guess we will have to wait and see if that ever happens to me hahahaaaa (SOHH)
T-Pizzle officially went with a low cut a few days ago and documented the process.
“Mid cut <~ couldn't find the dude version of this but. Yea."
“Go to YouTube. Search for “T-Pain Know Thy Self” to find out more”
“We must all learn to adjust with our surroundings. Those who get stuck doing the same things for too long are bound to get left behind the strong who press on and reinvent themselves. Also. Good news. Hair grows back.” (T-Pain’s Instagram)
A few months ago, rumors of rap star Lil Wayne cutting off his hair bubbled online.
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)
