What Would Have Happened If He Wore Cornrows?

Taken From Stereohyped:

Here’s something I bet you didn’t know about Chris Rock: He owes his entire career to the sage advice of Andre Harrell and a quick trip to the barber shop. Don’t believe me? Ask Andre, who highlights the seminal moment in his upcoming memoir, Notes on a Revolution: From Uptown to Nu America. Producer Andre Harrell, who’s collaborating on his autobiography with screenwriter Barry Michael Cooper, recalls being on tour with Chris Rock in the ’80s, when the comedian bombed with an audience.

Harrell told him, “They don’t get how you are trying to talk down to them while you’re rocking a Jheri curl,” Cooper recounted. “Shave it off,” said Harrell. “You’re spraying wack juice on everybody on the tour.”

Rock lost the ’80s hair, and the rest is history.

Just think, if it weren’t for Harrell, Rock would have still been dripping wack juice all over audiences instead of making them laugh. I wonder if Harrell saw Bad Company, Head of State, and I Think I Love My Wife and can offer Rock some movie advice.
