In the News: April 2008 Archives

Dude, that is sooo 1990

Some students at Centennial High School* have shaved vertical lines into their eyebrows in a trend recently made popular by hip-hop star Soulja Boy. School officials say the mark looks like a gang symbol.

Centennial administrators are telling students with the lines that they can't return to school until they shave their eyebrows off. Assistant Principal Mark Porterfield said the students are not suspended, but they are not allowed in school until they cooperate.

Somewhere in the back of my mind I hear:

Stop, collaborate and listen
Ice is back with a brand new invention
Something, grabs a hold of me tightly
Flow like a hawk move daily and nightly
Will it ever stop? Yo I don't know
Turn off the light, and I'll glow
To the extreme, I rock the mic like a vandal
Light up the stage and wax a chump like candle

OK, that was off the top of my head. It's too bad these teenagers don't realize they're aping a style pioneered by one of the most ridiculed rappers of all time. That could put a swift end to the practice.
