    I can’t believe there is a post about Basketmouth’s hair cut?!? Are we for real here? Not that he would say it, but I’m pretty sure he is thinking to himself “this people no get better tin to engage sha.”

    Thank the Lord…Whew!!! That deads or watever it was called was an eye-sore, am sure his wife nagged him into getting a hair cut,so at least he can look like a normal human-being before his child starts recognizing him and thinking he/she has a mad man for a father 🙂
