This past weekend, LoveBrownSugar.com contributor Kisha caught up with female rapper & America’s Best Dance Crew judge Lil’ Mama backstage at the Global Fusion Festival in Philadelphia.
She was rocking a brand new fro-hawk ‘do (which was quite cute) and we got into asking her about her new style. You may recall that Lil’ Mama recently posted a Twitpic of herself rocking out with a natural ‘fro (see below), which garnered tons of attention when she put it up in May.
“I posted the picture of my hair and people were like ‘Omg you look like a shocked slave!’ I didn’t get one comment from a white person about my hair. All of them came from the sisters that had these bullsh** helmut weaves looking like a fake a** Nicki Minaj. They don’t know who they are. And the people they’re looking to for guidance don’t know who they are either, which sucks.”
Aside from going all-natural with her hair, she’s also decided recently to spring for natural nails. She no longer uses acrylic nails. A recent mishap actually led to an allergic reaction and what Lil’ Mama believes was a message from God about being natural, in the form of a blister shaped like Africa.
