Today's go to hair-style that most overlaps with Hip Hop is the mo-hawk (seen worn by hip hop stars P Diddy and Chris Brown). Popularized in the NBA by the likes of James Harden, Russell Westbrook, and Chris Anderson, the narrow strip of hair coming to a peak in the middle of players heads is the most current look, with as many variations as you can imagine. Still, you can find flashes of history every now and then, whether it's Andrew Bynum rocking the 70's afro, Nerlens Noel with the 80's box cut, or Kawhi Leonard as the last player alive wearing Iverson braids. Who knows what's next, maybe everything has been done before and it's time to start over, or perhaps we will discover that hip hop and hoop avant garde is truly everlasting.
