T-Pain has lost his crown, sort of. The master of Auto-Tune and croon decided to cut his dreadlocks and in keeping with modern day protocol, he shared the event via Instagram and video.
In the first pic his "barber" is wearing an elaborate mask/helmet contraption that we wouldn't recommend if you're trying to get your Caesar shaped up. Next is a bag filled with hair but we don't ever see a photo of what the hair of his noggin looks like right now.
The final photo in the series shows T-Pain sporting a knit hat and included the following caption:
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.
Hip-Hop Wired reached out to Future's representatives to see if he was going to shear his locks in solidarity, but we have yet to hear back. Actually, no we didn't but considering the shots T-Pain sent Future, you know you thought that was funny, too.
T-Pain's new album, Stoicville The Phoenix, is coming soon. Why the limited pics? Because there is a video, actually a mini-documentary, of course. Check it out in the following pages.
