Leader Of The New ‘Do

Thanks Best Week Ever for sending this my way:

Busta Rhymes cut off the dreadlocks he started growing fifteen years ago. Apparently it’s a big fucking deal because he captured the event on a boring-ass video, which ends with a phone call to his momma.

“I’m about to cut this shit off man. Y’all gonna see the sexiest head you ever seen in yo motherfuckin’ life.” Watch. (ASX)

Remember a few months back when little-known Belgian singer Salvatore Acquaviva claimed Madonna’s “Frozen” plagiarized parts of his “Ma Vie Fout L’camp”? (He won his lawsuit, incidentally.) It reminded me of my favorite accidental musical plagiarism of all time: Busta Rhymes’ “Dangerous.”

Busta unwittingly stole the infectious “Dangerous” chorus from a Long Island public service announcement I remember watching as a kid. It’s hilarious. Listen to the MP3, and then check out the video.

And don’t take pills you find lying around the house, kids!
