Breaking beauty news: The rapper, famous for his major dreads, may have just cut them off! What do you think of his new short crop? Sound off below!
Lil Wayne, 30, has had his signature dreads for as long as we can remember and now, in a drastic turn of events, they appear to be gone and replaced by a super-short cut! The star’s hairstyle may have varied slightly between long dreads, short braids, and more, but some incarnation of the dreads was always there. The star was photographed with rapper Big Boi at his birthday bash January 31 in New Orleans with this brand new ‘do.
Lil Wayne’s Dreads: Now You See Them Now You Don’t
The star, who has been a rap prodigy since the tender age of 11, has been so attached to his hair that he’s even mentioned the ‘do in several songs. In the Ester Dean song “Drop It Low (Remix)” with Chris Brown, he croons, “Hair to the back, Hat to the front,” and in his song “I’m Single,” he raps, “Dreads braided to the back / I’m chillin’ but my swag on full attack.” It would be a shock if he cut it!
Lil Wayne Also Loves Tattoos
Something else the superstar is famous for: his tattoos. “Tattoos are just a way of expressing myself. Me being me. I just went crazy. I don’t know what happened. I think somebody slipped something in my drink, like a drug that’ll make you get, like, a bunch of tattoo,” he told GQ. We’re sure Lil Wayne won’t be stopping his body art any time soon!
