Remember Big Daddy Kane and those sexy ass cuts in his eyebrows? Well, your aunties back in the day probably thought they were. And then there was Jay Z and his infamous verse, ‘three cuts in your eyebrows, tryin to wild out’. Well apparently cuts are making a come back.
In an Buzzfeed article a fashion writer renamed them, and is now referring to them as ‘slits’.
This writer credited hip-hop, but said Soulja Boy made them famous?
In a post for The Root, Yesha Callahan hilariously set Buzzfeed straight. And offered a lesson about ‘cuts’, by mentioning the fact that both Big Daddy Kane and Jay Z came well before Soulja Boy:
But for the love of everything that is hip-hop culture, do not call them slits.
Calling something that is older than Soulja Boy “slits” is a microaggression and an attempt to rename a cultural legacy that is older than Soulja Boy and all of these newbies doing it.
These are cuts. These are shaved brows. Not slits.
Stop the Columbusing. Thank you.
Oh, and a word of advice to those cutting up their eyebrows: You better pray they grow back in.
Look at these people:
Just stop. Please. Somewhere Big Daddy Kane is looking at all of this and shaking his head.
