Sporting his recently cut down coif, Lloyd shows that he’s still Mr. Swagnaficient — with or without his famous mane.
In September, the ATLien shaved the length braids he’s been sporting since his 2004 debut, donating the hair to Locks of Love — a non-profit organization that creates human hair wigs for patients suffering medically-induced hair loss.
Call it a new look for Lloyd. The R&B singer has been rocking shoulder-length locks that would put Pocahontas to shame, but the new Interscope signee — under Polow Da Don’s Zone 4 imprint — recently hit up a barbershop in his native Atlanta to switch up his signature ‘do for a worthy cause. Lloyd’s cut his hair and decided to donate the healthy tresses to Locks of Love, a non-profit organization that uses hair donations to provide wigs to people suffering medical-related hair loss.
In a post BET Awards backstage interview with Rap-Up on Sunday, R&B singer Lloyd claimed he advised Chris Brown to open up his heart and shed tears during his Michael Jackson tribute in order to claw back into the good graces of the public.
G-Unit’s Lloyd Banks has been arrested on suspicion of assault and robbery in Canada. The rapper was taken into custody by police in Ontario over the weekend after allegedly attacking club promoter and hip-hop road manager Chris Hines, according to AllHipHop.com.
Hines booked Banks to perform several tracks at Club NV, but arrived late and only played one song before leaving the stage. Hines refused to pay the tardy Banks for the gig, reportedly prompting a fight between the promoter and the rapper, who had been accompanied by three associates.
Hines was admitted to a local hospital and treated for multiple contusions and head trauma. Banks is facing charges of assault, robbery, and forced confinement.
Lloyd has severed ties with songbird Ciara insisting fame has changed the good-natured “Goodies” singer he once knew. The crooner befriended CiCi when the two were attending the same Atlanta high school, but Lloyd admits he’s lost touch with Ciara in recent years because her ego has gotten the best of her.
“I don’t fuck with Hollywood bitches and she’s like one of the chicks that’s just changed along the way with the fame and the money and all of that. I don’t really get down with her anymore on some real shit. The truth hurts, but it will set you free. But I wish her all the best,” Lloyd reveals in the new issue of Hip Hop Weekly.
