Found on Rap-Up.com
Lloyd welcomed Rap-Up TV on set of his “Lay It Down” video shoot at Voyeur nightclub in West Hollywood where he was filming a dream sequence with director Mickey Finnegan (Soulja Boy’s “Pretty Boy Swag”).
Sammie Davis Jr. Jr. discussed the video concept for his Polow Da Don-produced single and the reason he decided to cut off his trademark braids. “There’s a feeling of being reborn, of starting fresh, and I’m just trying something new, switching it up, being spontaneous,” he said. “It’s almost 2011, and in my opinion, that’s the end of the braids.” And while he may no longer be “Long Hair, Don’t Care,” he has a new motto to match his new look: “Low Fade, Still Paid.”
If you can’t wait to get your hands on Lloyd’s album King of Hearts, good news awaits. The release date may be moved up from February to December. “It will be one of the top 5 best albums of 2010,” proclaimed a confident Lloyd.

Lloyd Polite aka “Young Goldie” brought his new ‘cut swag to the set of his “Lay It Down” video in L.A. If you can’t tell, he recruited “Soul Plane’s” leading lady KD Aubert to play his love interest. More photos when you continue!
Looks like there was a little chemistry on the set at Voyeur nightclub in LA. Lloyd tweeted to leading lady KD afterward:
Borrowing from his Young Money bros we see!
By the way, Lloyd has changed his “Long Hair Don’t Care” mantra to “Low Fade Still Paid” to suit his new shorter haircut.

LONG HAIR DON’T CARE? .... LONG HAIR DOES CARE!! LLOYD CUTS OFF HIS HAIR AND DONATES IT TO A WORTHY CAUSE!!
Lloyd aka. “Mr. Long Hair Don’t Care” surprised his fans today via twitter (@lloyd_yg) when he revealed that he cut off his trademark braids for a worthy cause. The R&B star, who began growing his hair over 10 years ago, felt like it was time for a change, and time to give back, “I’ve been growing my hair since 9th grade. It’s time for a new me.” said Lloyd. He went on to say, “The fact that my hair will go to someone that needs it more than me, makes me feel great about my decision.”
Lloyd has always been an avid supporter of non-profit charity work, especially when his efforts go toward benefiting children in need. Non-profit organization Locks of Love will use Lloyd’s donated hair to provide a hair piece for a financially disadvantaged child (under age 21) suffering from long-term medical hair loss. The organization was happy to work with Lloyd, and both parties hope that their partnership will inspire others to donate.
Mahogany Wright, Lloyd’s long time hair braider gave the artist one final braid, then did the honors of cutting off the 12 inch lock of hair. Moments before, Lloyd had this to say, “I’m doing this for me. I feel like it’s time for a change and now is the perfect time." Lloyd’s childhood barber, known simply as “Parker The Barber”, who was the last person to cut his hair when he was just 14, finished the job, giving the artist a fresh new look. After his cut, Lloyd simply stated, “I feel liberated.”
Lloyd has been busy prepping his 4th studio album and Zone 4/Interscope debut, ‘King of Hearts’ which will be lead by the new single “Lay It Down” produced by Awesome Jones (aka Polow Da Don). He now has a new look and new energy to go with his new label situation and new album.
