Yung LA Explains Pink Duck Tattoo

The Grand Hustle member explains the meaning behind his perplexing facial tattoo.

The internet was ablaze when images showing Yung LA's new face tattoo made their rounds online.

In an interview with, the Grand Hustle rapper explained the meaning behind the tat, which is best described as a pink duck.

“That tattoo just comes from something in the city,” explained Yung LA. “My cousins grew up with a lot of people from Zone 6, I know a lot of people from Zone 6, and the people from Zone 6, there whole movement is called Duct Tape and I just had been really getting up with these guys. Everybody in the city from Zone 6, Zone 3, Zone 1, from Duct Tape to YGC to CDB to 30 Deep, there’s so many cliques in Atlanta and I just wanted to be the Robin Hood, I just wanted to be the guy that could have relationships with everybody in the city.”

Though his relationship with Duct Tape Entertainment, and Atlanta record label, has been disputed by Alley Boy, an artist and co-CEO at the label, Yung LA remains adamant about his affiliation.

“I can’t really go on what [Alley Boy] say ’cause he’s not the CEO of the label,” said LA. “So he wasn’t around at the sit-down, when we did chop it up. I had my relationship with Big Bank Black, other cats, and people that I grew up with and they love me genuinely. That’s the relationship I had.”

Currently Yung LA is focused on getting out of his deal with T.I.'s Grand Hustle Records. “Right now we’re actually fighting,” he said, citing "backwards" business practices as his reason for trying to leave. “We got our lawyers going to war with them. They just tryin’ to free me out of the contract. They don’t wanna let me go, but they don’t want to work for me either.”

    It is amazing to me to see BLACK MEN getting tats in their faces!!! I would rather see the WHITE MAN USING the WHIP on a BLACK MAN BACK than to SEE A BLACK MAN TAT HIS OWN FACE. Now look at who can afford to do such a thing like tatting up their face rapppers, basketball and football players. They don't plan on working in Corp America. Please Please Black Man Stop the Maddness!!! Black Man just for thought you don't own or make the Ink Somebody, Anybody can and will create something to put in the Ink that could change your LIFE or DESTORY BLACK MEN Forever!!!!!

  • John-Boy

    Whats sad is that soon our young black males are going to start following these rappers leads and start getting face tattoos. To any young black males reading this comment please listen to me. Getting a face tattoo ""GUARANTEE'S"" that you will never have a decent job. No decent employer will hire you to represent their company with a facial tattoo of a duck, a tear, or anything. You will be working at Mcdonalds for the rest of your life. Don't believe me and want to look cool for your friends? Well go ahead and get one.

    Pink Duck face tats are all the rage these days...idiot

  • I'm At Work And Bored

    My brain hurts... How do you go from Duck Tape to a Pink Duck on your face? can someone please explain this to me?

  • Avila

    It's innovative, and the most strategic move ever for the benefit and movement of hip-hop: a Pink Duck. This is what we as a hip-hop community have been missing all along. This is the role model of the youth that listen to him, but also the solution to the lack of concern for the struggles of people throughout the world. Lets hope this Pink Duck can finally unify all Arab countries and do away with all the dictators in all spectrums of an industry.
