There are so many reasons to bring up Willie Dee’s “Bald Headed Hoes.”
First and foremost, the concept is hilarious. The thought that a tough guy like Willie would dedicate a whole song to his dislike for a female’s hairstyle shows he really feels strongly about the subject and is great, in itself. His strong sentiment is cemented with lines like “What are you bitch, a boy or a girl?” and “The meanest ass hoes I ever seen.” Whether those brazen statements have merit or not, the fact The Geto Boys member held no punches on this exclamation point from his aptly titled 1989 album Controversy is why we’re still talking about it today.
Well, that and the outrageous hook, cringe-worthy ad-libs and simplistic beat that makes DJ Mustard look like Mozart. Gotta love the ’80s, the time when people got away with anything.
