I'm not feeling this style worn by NBA baller Carmelo and his boy, rapper Diego Cash at the Velvet Room this past Sunday.

I was told not to mention the words "suspect" or "How U doin" in regards to the old school culottes 'Melo is sportin'. I was also told not to go in on them for dressing alike right down to the faux diamond pendants. So I won't mention any of that.

Rapper Fabolous is one of the few straight rappers still remaining in the game

  • iscream

    @ Sponge comment 5 two words.

    Necole B!tchie

    & you may be onto somthing as far as the style. They must hire stylist to dress them....

    Hell naw. Aint no stylist told them to wear that same get up. They planned that down to the sneakers. Who does that?

    "Yo what you wearing?"
    "Black jeans and top."
    "Nah, nicca wear some beige pants, white tee like me."
    "Word. That'll be dope. Should I wear my black sneakers."
    "Nah son. Rock some Red ones yo."
    "Word. Word. Meet me outside so we can walk in together."

    Sorry, even trying to make it sound hood that shyt is gay as heck.

  • Daisy

    my BF better never cut his braids off......im tired of the celebs cutting them off

  • LovelyLady

  • LovelyLady

    spongebobfan Says:

    my BF better never cut his braids off……im tired of the celebs cutting them off

    I use to feel like that...but i hate braids, dreads (well sometimes not all), twist, fros whatever...i like men with short hair...when they cut it off it makes them look so mature.

  • Daisy

    I like FAB as an artist and again Trey is sexy as hail

    Shauny you betta tell them to back off your boy Melo they going hard lol

    I like teyana taylors reply to I need a girl letting Trey know she will be his girl very cute I think she is very talented

  • masonmom

    thank you lovely! leave the braids to the men who dont want to move up the corporate ladder and stay content wit $9 hr jobs! i cant stand to see young black men thinking they gonna sit in a board meeting with a suit on rockin dreads/cornrows/anything other than the "low cut caesar wit the deep waves"

  • Daisy

    Trey needed to cut his hair and I missed when Trey or NB confirmed they had relations

    @lovely I am GiGi to answer your ?

  • LovelyLady

    @ Daisy oh ok

    I dont think they ever acknowledged that and they want which is good. For what we all know they just cool.

  • masonmom

    men look so much cleaner with low cuts. i hate when dreads be so long and dirty lookin. even if they do keep em up, lookin at dreads makes me sweat! cornrows and braids...so typical for young black men. i got so tired of allen iverson old azz rockin the "maze braids" but watchin his mama on tv one rockin 2 pigtails wit glitter on her eyelids i seen why!

  • mizzdallas

    Trey & NB are NOT together nor have they slept around if you read their tweets you will know that! They have confirmed this many times via twitt

  • http://myspace.com/rayne215 spongebobfan

    My BF with the braids is in IT Application Services some tech job hes very professional, the braid thing is a sterotype, he jokes that his braids is whats keeping him fro being the 'non threating black male' in his office

  • masonmom

    hey mizz...how u doin! u been watchin wendy? i love her show.

  • Daisy

    @mizz I know that I was being funny ppl always link them its funny to me lol

    AI is such a cutie pie n his mama is off the chain

  • masonmom

    exactly sponge! he gets the idea of what im talkin about. its not my rules..its The Man's aka chez whitey's corporate rules. i know im not sending nobody to represent my company wit braids whether its done or not. would you take lil wayne seriously if he walked in a meeting talking about investing your money.

  • LovelyLady

    I think working in IT might be just a lil different. I know at my job all the IT folks are like rockstars. Im talking mohawks, tats every where, dyed hair and piercings

    Which brings me to ask.....

    Do you guys feel as though its different for Whites and Blacks. (not trying to oplay the race card here) but honestly.

    Coorporate America will acccept the mohawks and whatnot before the dreads, fros and corn rows

  • LovelyLady



  • masonmom

    lovely we are on the same page! black men already have 2 strikes: 1. being black 2. young and black. they judge us already from the stereotypes so why give them more of a reason to judge and hold us back. even if you have ur own business, you need The Man's money to sponsor you and get you started so you need to look presentable. name ceo's and other business owners rockin braids and cornrows? anybody on the forbes list? black enterprise mag?

  • http://twitter.com/LaydeeJustice LadyJustice

    melo and that boy look a lil funny. they even got the same shoes on. smh LaLa better keep her eye on him :rofl:

    u were harsh on trey sandra. thats not nice

  • Daisy

    As a female with locs I think its different than black males although here n the A I see a lot of prof blk men with locs I work in Proj Mgt in corporate america and several of my co workers have locs even in mgt so I don't know.

  • LovelyLady

    Daisy Says:

    As a female with locs I think its different than black males
    I agree it just seems like when they see a black man with any type of hair they automatically label them "thugs".

  • http://myspace.com/rayne215 spongebobfan

    its ALWAYS different for whites and blacks ...sad but true....
    and lol mason.....trying to picture lil wayne telling me to invest my money ha ha

    but still I have seen neat dreads and neat braids,
    my bf dont be having the designs etc just straight backs and a fresh outline w/ gotee...

    fros? only if it was 1972... dreads can be really nice...not all rasta man in middle of Kingston.....

  • masonmom

    watch this topic end up on a dateline special. just like the one about how companys judge you from the name on resumes. should i pick Bon QuiQui Shaniqua Jenkins or Sarah Smith!

  • masonmom

    @sponge..he rockin the Wade from Noah's Ark

  • http://myspace.com/rayne215 spongebobfan

    I hear Vick went to strip club with AI and AI wife*sideeye*

    hope he had fun....im sure the 2 months of house arrest he spent knocking it out the park!

  • Daisy

    @sponge I PRAY the 1st place he didnt go was a strip club lawd Jesus say it aint true! lol

  • ELove

    WOW Ms. Sandra... WHY are you going hard at Trey LIKE THAT
    My God-Daughter and her gurls would beat the brakes off you talking about THEIR TREY like that :rofl:

    And I KNOW it's some chicks down there in the A that feel the same way... You MUST ROLL like 15 to 20 deep when you go out Baby-Gurl !!! LOL

    And that last chick in the photo to my right
    ARE THOSE REAL (Just Kinda Curios...)


    Do some of you know what same is? Their shoes are not the same at all,don't even look like the same brand! That is LaLa's brother, Diego.

  • http://myspace.com/rayne215 spongebobfan

    elove where u been you was mia like sandra lol

  • Anna

    ELove Says:
    And that last chick in the photo to my right
    ARE THOSE REAL (Just Kinda Curios…)

    I wondered the same thing. My conclusion is yes. She probably looks a little older than she is and has not had the pleasure of being a mommy yet, which = to still having "perky boobs".

  • http://myspace.com/rayne215 spongebobfan

    im sure we noticed they arent teh SAME shoes...but 2 grown men color cordinating is a bit much...we are aware who diego is.... its :gay: either way its spun

  • ELove

    I'm in the middle of READING the comments...
    :rofl: I'll come back later to read the rest !!!

  • Daisy

    @Elove hey sweetie :kiss:

    I am a Trey STAN with his fine sexy azz and I pay Sandras digs at him no nevermind!

    @Munch I already told the room that was LaLa's brother. Per her twitter he was filming his new rap video.

  • Shauny

    OK yall made me come out of hibernation going at my men. FIRSTLY, Melo is NOT dressed like dude. I don't think it was planned (I'll call and ask him to make sure...lol). My #1 cougar crush is 100% man and straight damnit!

    Secondly, Sandra you better leave my #2 cougar crush alone! Trey aint never struggling, he's MAD slept on though because he isn't a dancer. Trey Day is still in my CD changer.

    What up Daisy, Isc, Krysi, sponge, E, mizzdallas, and the rest of the SR family. Back to my vacation now.

    TEAM MELO and TREY!!

  • Daisy

    Hey Shauny I am glad I paged you..lol You held it down for Melo but umm you can back up OFF my boo Trey thank you very kindly..lol

  • Shauny

    Daisy like Krysi and I agree to share Melo you're just going to have to put your stingy thoughts aside and take Trey on Mondays and Wednesdays. I'll take him the rest of the days of the week...lol

  • pointhimout

    nothing wrong with two good friends dressing alike. when you're 12. wth? it's so time for grown men to dress accordingly. if you're 30 and dressed like a 15 year old walking up the street, who's in the wrong?

    who are the bloggers in chicago, houston, etc. I just have to know if their party scene is as lame as Atlanta's.

  • http://myspace.com/dannyblaq dblaq

    I guess women call dudes gay like dudes call women bitches & hoes if they don't be with who they want them to be.
