Roots 'n Rhythm: It's Rick James' Birthday!

Rick James stayed fly. Get into those boots!
I know, I know. You are thinking what on earth does Rick James have to do with natural hair beauty?  Well I can't think of another man that put men rocking braids on the map quite like Rick James did back in the 70's and 80's. In my opinion, no man has so successfully pulled this off since.  I give you Exhibit A.

Axl Rose
Who agreed to do this for Axl Rose? I want names.

Today let's celebrate the man responsible for hits like "Mary Jane". "Cold Blooded", "Fire & Desire" and of course the song also responsible for MC Hammer's biggest hit,  "Super Freak".  We miss you Rick James.
