People from Dallas, Texas always do things their own way. Now the folks in Dallas are pushing a new hairstyle that's catching on like wildfire.

The hairstyle is called "The Booty" and rapper Yella Beezy showed off his fresh new "booty" cut.

But this hairstyle isn't exactly new. It was popular in the 1980s - except then it was called the "shag." New Edition helped make this one o the most popular hairstyles among Black men at the time.

Yella Beezy is also recovering from multiple gun shot wounds. He was shot multiple times just a few weeks ago.

In mid-October officers found the wounded man about 3:30 a.m. along the State Highway 121 Bypass. He was driving on the tollway when he was fired on more than a dozen times by someone in a vehicle that pulled up next to him, police said.

Lewisville police said Monday afternoon that Conway had been released from the hospital, but Capt. Jesse Hunter said Monday evening that information provided had been incorrect. Conway remains hospitalized.

Police have not determined a motive for the shooting, Capt. Dan Rochelle said. No arrests have been made.

In September, Yella Beezy opened for Beyonce and Jay-Z when the couple made a tour stop in Arlington, TX.

In interviews, the rapper has spoken about struggles during his childhood, including his dad's death when he was 12. He mentioned his dad in his song "Dawg These Hoes," where he raps: "I'm Tony Conway's son."
