But, Philly tells us that he’s just glad everyone got out of the cup safely … even if the outfit got him hot during work. As for how the cut turned out … it doesn’t seem like Melo is complaining about the look – and Philly told us, “Actually, it really worked. “ Swagger with a side of security. It’s of course Big Baller!
