Terrence Davidson and Nicki Minaj

You may have heard that rapper Nicki Minaj fired her entire Glam squad for making her look like a hot mess these last couple of years. Well, Terrence Davidson, Nicki’s wig maker, decided to come forward and clear the air in a letter to his fans (yes, he has fans).

Here is a comedic take on the late Notorious BIG’s hit track “Ten Crack Commandments,” titled “Ten Weave Commandments” by @Urbancomedynet. This video is strictly for women whose weave game is in need of serious help. This is 2012. There is no excuse for women to walk around with matted fur on their heads. Weave only looks good when it’s well-maintained and clean. Don’t just put weave in and leave it in for 6 months. Your friends won’t tell you if your weave smells.

The Ten helpful Tips are as follows:

1. Never let your tracks show (self-explanatory)
2. Always travel with your weave glue (or hair pins in case a track falls out)
3. Always pat your head when it’s itchy (patting won’t pull out the tracks or make your hair messy)
4. Never lie and say “it’s all mine.”
5. Never make your weave too greasy (there’s nothing worse than a greasy weave, believe me)
