Dipset’s Jim Jones has undergone a serious makeover by deciding to get rid of his signature braids in favor of a shorter hairdo.
Jones revealed the new look by Tweeting photos of his cropped locks.
“RT @bossmobbsnagz: I HAD THE ORIGINAL FIRST PIC…. OF THE BIG HOMIE WENT FROM THUG TO GENTLEMAN….http://lockerz.com/s/99108723”
“Get a good look at th bad guy this th last time u see a bad guy look this good#SPOOKY #vampirelife #CAPO http://lockerz.com/s/99148565,” Jones Tweeted Friday (May 6). (Jim Jones’ Twitter)
In the past, Jones has hinted at his long hair frustrations.
“I hate gettin my hair braided shouts to noi nizzle for doin my hair did,” he tweeted April 2009. (Jim Jones’ Twitter)
Last summer, R&B singer Lloyd also chopped off his lengthy hair.
Lloyd’s been rocking shoulder-plus length locks since way before he was crooning on 2004’s “Southside” with Ashanti. But today the new Interscope signee (under Polow Da Don‘s Zone 4 imprint) hit up an Atlanta barbershop to switch up his ‘do for a good cause – – he’s donating to Locks for Love. (VIBE)
He also opened up about why he chose to get rid of his braids.
Mahogany Wright, Lloyd’s long time hair braider gave the artistone final braid, then did the honors of cutting off the 12 inch lock of hair. Moments before, Lloyd had this to say, “I’m doing this for me. I feel like it’s time for a change and now is the perfect time.” Lloyd’s childhood barber, known simply as “Parker The Barber”, who was the last person to cut his hair when he was just 14, finished the job, giving the artist a fresh new look. After his cut, Lloyd simply stated, “I feel liberated.” (Ozone Mag)
