You could say I'm Malcolm-esque

from Das Racist – You Oughta Know Lyrics on Rap Genius


In Malcolm X’s autobiography, he vividly describes the act of “conking,” when a black person gets their hair chemically straightened, ie turned from “bad hair” to “good hair.”

Adding “-esque” to a word is similar to adding “-like,” and is also pronounced almost exactly the same as “X” – an aural pun worth noting.
