Photos of Lil Wayne and Big Boi were posted through Instagram, leading fans to believe Lil Wayne cut off his dreads. In the photo, Wayne has his hair pulled back which makes it appear that his dreads are gone. The rumor started when photos of Lil Wayne and Big Boi were posted through Instagram. In a report on bet.com, Lil Wayne fans were shocked that Tunechi cut off his signature dreads, a rumor fueled by a photo of Big Boi with Wayne at Thursday night’s Madden Bowl XIX event. Contrary to popular belief, his dreads are still intact.
MTV News contributor Kelly Carter watched Tunechi perform at a pre-Super Bowl party in New Orleans and posed for a picture with the A Milli MC- she said Lil Wayne’s locks are still there. “I’m pretty sure he still had his dreads and they were pulled back in a ponytail. In fact, I’m like 1,000 percent positive. I would’ve noticed that.”
Also, according to Hollywood Life, Lil Wayne was at Lakeside Mall in Metaire for a Macy’s event promoting his line of clothing and for the most part, showing off his dreads.
Carter also sent photos to MTV that she snapped to prove that there was no hair-cut.
