Back in 1999, a group of well-meaning fellas from Adelaide, South Australia got together and started Movember.
The premise was simple: the men would spend the entire November growing mustaches, raising money for charity in the process.
Almost instantly, Movember went from being a cult following to a worldwide phenomenon. Now, 13 years later, Movember is celebrated by men like it’s Christmas, all in a effort to fight common male issues, including colon cancer, depression and erectile dysfunction (we’re joking about the last one…we think!)
Well this year, GlobalGrind is in full Movember mode. Not only are a couple of dudes on our staff growing out their best looking staches’, but we are also here to salute some of the best mustaches hip-pop has given us.
Scroll down, enjoy and then vote on which hip-pop star has the best mustache of all time!
