When it comes to appreciating a nice pair of dreadlocks, nobody has better taste than Lil Jon. An incident that started back in December dealing with dreads has the rapper speaking out about the importance of the style to the many that wear it. That month, a video went viral on social media featuring a high school wrestler who was given a difficult choice. The referee in the match told the wrestler he either had to cut his dreads off before wrestling, or he would forfeit the match. Of course, the high school wrestler had to make his decision mere minutes before the match was due to start, according to TMZ.For the many who saw the video, the referee 's actions seemed massively unfair, especially given that he only provided minutes for the student to decide. Of course, the ref was called a bevy of names on social media. Now, that same referee filed a lawsuit for defamation against those who called him a racist for forcing the haircut. However, Lil Jon recently spoke out about the issue and feels the referee does not deserve any sympathy for forcing a decision like that on a high school kid.
