Image, in the music industry, is everything. You can be the the greatest rhymer or singer in the world, but if your personality resembles that of a stop sign, you’re not doing yourself any favors. It’s not always right, but it is the reality of the situation. Knowing this, it was probably a portion of the reason Lloyd decide to chop his hair off for the old school Malcolm X conk. Trey discarded his braids, and look, his career’s been on the up and up ever since.
What another man does with his hair, however, is really none of my business. As long as Lloyd can put out another quality album, he can don the Roscoe Dash mohawk for all I care. King Of Hearts is the forthcoming LP and the lead single “Lay It Down” has been on repeat for awhile now. It’s a smooth, yet up tempo and catchy offering which isn’t too drenched in corniness so the male species can appreciate its direction and ultimate end result. The video features cameos from Keri Hilson, the song’s producer, Polow Da Don, and K.D. Aubert – also known as “Donna” from Friday After Next.
Going back a few years and checking her previous work, one thing is for certain about Ms. Aubert. She obviously has a thing for guys named Lloyd.
