Black Music Month 2011: Top 10 Songs About Hair

Black Music Month has been celebrated in the United States since its inception in 1979. 28 years ago on June 7th, President Jimmy Carter decreed June as a month dedicated to celebrating black musical contributions. Although I believe black music is still alive (depending on where you’re looking for it) and should be celebrated year round, I’ll go ahead and mix the concept with something else I appreciate… HAIR!
