Rappers and Beards – Who Can Pull One Off and Who Should Shave

He doesn’t count. He’s just a hill billy Vanilla Ice. Like Ice, he’s sure to flame out shortly after the release of his second album. Even if he turns out to be the next Eminem, he still doesn’t count. He’s not breaking the mold because he’s white, YelaWolf is breaking it because he’s from Gadsden, Alabama. Gadsden has a population that could fit inside the Rose Bowl twice over. YelaWolf isn’t a rapper. He’s a salebarn auctioneer. The beard suits him just fine.

He doesn’t count either. That’s just scruff.

Another one that doesn’t count. Banks keeps his facial hair so high and tight that it’s must managed scruff. It’s just kind of peach fuzz with a pedicure.
