Rapper Akon is going viral this morning, after posting a picture of his brand new hairline. It’s clear to most looking at the picture, and to Media Take Out, that something is odd about his hairline. It has either been augmented with a hair piece or a hair transplant.
Either way, it looks pretty bad.
