Black Birthday Baes We Love Because… Virgo Season
And then God created the Virgo man…make that Virgo men. Virgos are said to be highly intelligent, practical, patient, and simplistic beings. They are very critical of themselves and refuse to be seen as second best. And we don’t know if this is in the official astrological description, but we also happen to find them quite sexy. In honor of Virgo season, here are our favorite men born under the sign.
Idris Elba (September 6th)
We never get tired of looking at this man. I mean, how could we? And if we do, get us to near the nearest shrink for a psycho analysis. He’s so perfect–a tall, chocolate international lover with a beautiful smile. The slightly grey beard is a total panty dropper; no matter how old he gets, he can get it.
Nas (September 14th)
Listen… Nasir Jones is the finished product derived from the How To Make A Black Man manual. He’s intelligent, charismatic, enterprising, and gorgeous with a hint of gangsta. Even when he had the chipped tooth back in the day, we were obsessed with him. We see you Nasty Nas!
Big K.R.I.T. (August 26th)
This country boy is so necessary for the culture. His 2016 BET Hip Hop award show performance in a cop uniform left us feeling proud (and mesmerized) as he exposed the harsh realities of police brutality.
Chris Tucker (August 31st)
Christ Tucker is that class clown who can brighten your lamest day. Every woman needs someone to make her laugh until her abs feel like she’s overdosed on crunches.
Wale (September 21st)
Ladies like a man who can open up and show some emotion and Wale can definitely do that. He has all the traits of a good listener and foot massager for when you’ve had jacked up day at work.
Ludacris (September 11th)
Growth is a beautiful thing. When he hit the scene crica 2000 with braids and baggy clothes, Luda was a wild boy spilling free tea about his sexcapades. Now he’s married and expanded his career as an actor and business man.
Larez Tate (September 8th)
It was lovely surprise seeing Larenz in Girls Trip this summer. He’s like lover who lays low on communication for months, and then all of a sudden he’s back like her never left—looking sexier each time.
Blair Underwood (August 25th)
Blair Underwood is the bae who can do no wrong–no matter what villainous role he’s playing on film. He’s brilliant and beautiful with sophistication money can’t buy.
2 Chainz (September 12th)
Virgo men are smart and resourceful which rapper 2 Chainz personified when he turned an Atlanta home into a pink trap house to promote his latest album and then turned that into a resource center for HIV testing. And let’s not forget how his “Dabbin’ Santa” sweatshirts took Christmas by storm.
Dave Chapelle (August 24th)
Virgos have quite an introspective side, and even in his comedic artistry Dave Chapelle is one woke brother.
Doug E. Fresh (September 17th)
Who can rock a party like the Human Beat Box? Since appearing on the hip-hop scene in the 80s the Barbados-born rapper/producer continues to sell out shows.
Malik Yoba (September 17th)
Let’s take a moment to recognize an original chocolate bae. We’d let Detective J.C. Williams interrogate us any day!
Mario (August 27th)
Every girl wanted Mario to be more than “just a friend” back in the day. Rumor has it he’s staging an R&B comeback really soon.
Kel Mitchell (August 25th)
This actor has dedicated himself to God and has had one of the best glo ups ever. He literally went from Good Burger to beef cake with that full beard he’s been rocking.
