Yung LA is the hot mess of the day…or month
I know, I know, he’s like a permanent hot mess how with that pink duck tattoo, and it just gets worse. Since I reported on Yung LA’s lovely tattoo a few days ago, I will just start there. Yung LA is still trying to get out of his Grand Hustle contract, and for some reason unknown to every sane person, Grand Hustle doesn’t want to let him go. So, unrelated, he gets this wack pink duck tattoo on his face that strangely resembles the Duct Tape Entertainment logo, an Atlanta-based record label that has no intentions of signing Yung LA.
Yung LA sounds crazy. I’m not trying to be mean or unsympathetic, but he sounds crazier than most of the homeless who would harass me on a daily basis in Portland. He spoke with XXL, and confirmed that his tattoo is the Duct Tape Entertainment logo.
That tattoo just comes from something in the city. 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.
Ok, Robin Hood AKA Yung La…AKA Duck Face. Robin Hood also went on to say:
It was never a signing. It was just an understanding. It’s a verbal understanding, it’s an eye to eye understanding that’s saying, ‘Boy I see what you got going on,’ ‘Oh shit I’m fucking with you, when we out in these clubs we linkin’ up.’ It was never a deal.
Meanwhile, co-CEO of Duct Tape Entertainment Alley Boy (who according to Robin Hood/Duck Face/Yung LA is not the “real CEO”) is not amused by LA’s pink allegiance to his label, and also voiced his disapproval for XXL.
I guess he ran into my lil’ homies and shit, kickin’ it with them. You know they drinkin’ lean, smokin’ together…I guess he took that [as] being cool with some Duct Tape members, but they can’t tell you to go put nothin’ on your face. He’s gonna have [to get] like a pendant or a star or somethin’ to cover that shit. It’s like an ex-boyfriend name or somethin’, he finna get that shit covered-up. At the end of the day when he fell out with Grand Hustle I guess he felt like that would’ve been a great move for him because ‘if I got Duct tape behind me, ain’t nobody gonna be to quick to fuck with me out in the streets.’
All I can say about this is that it is just a hot mess, and not because I’m trying to stylize my posts to relate to my blog (“hot” mess, tha blog is “hot,” etc).
