“Lil Wayne Might Cut His Dreads Off”

Once Lil Wayne reports to prison he might have to cut his dreads off.

An expert on jail procedures says that New York inmates aren’t allowed to have excessive hair on their head unless there in cornrows and it can’t go past their neck.

As word is still spreading that LIL WAYNE was sentenced to one year in state prison, now come the inevitable questions: logistics.

Among many of the questions comes an interesting one: Will Weezy have to cut off his dreadlocks?

By now most of the world knows Wayne with his signature dreads – he even helped spur a resurgence of the tedious style following his meteoric success. But according to New York State law, dreadlocks are almost always forbidden.

We reached out to a lawyer friend of ours to find out Wayne’s sentence means for his almost waist-length locks.

“Male prisoners are only allowed to wear their hair in cornrows, going straight back. And they can’t exceed the ‘natural hairline’ in length.” Now of course our question is: what does ‘natural hairline’ mean?

“It means it can’t extend the neck.” But there is one loop-hole in the issue – though I’m not sure it’s going to help Wayne. “Prisoners who claim Rastafarri as their religion are allowed in most cases to keep their locks. But even then there’s a process to determine if it’s genuine.”

I know what you’re saying, Why does it matter to prison officials in the first place? Well the rules on personal grooming have everything to do with safety and control. Authorities argue that contraband can be hidden in the hair and that is can be shaved to quickly alter appearance in the event of escape.

So it doesn’t look good for Weezy. This will be one interesting mug shot.

    This is self-explanatory. Water flushes out the toxins in your body, hydrates you, satiates you (which helps you to resist overeating), and is good for you overall. Isn’t the body like 70% water or something like that (too lazy to google it)? I want to drink at least 3.5 liters (almost a gallon) a day.
