Menace II Society (1993)
For a smallish film with a limited release Menace II Society had a huge impact on teens in the early to mid 90s via VHS – specifically the character of O-Dog played by Larenz Tate. Much like Scarface, O-Dog was the guy you’re meant to see as a warning, but dudes everywhere warmed to his neatly dreadlocked barnet, proclivity for swearing and utter disregard for human life. Obviously not everyone has the ideal genes for dreadlocked hair, so guys could often be seen with plaits dangling from their heads, held at the ends with rubber bands (bonus points if those bands were in the colours of Ghanaian flag). Usually the look was complemented with some sleeping bag-width Karl Kani jeans, and an oversized mesh vest.
Is the look still doable?
Perhaps if you’re going to a Wavey Garms club night. Otherwise, no – it looks a bit daft.
