Alley Boy Speaks on Yung LA’s Face Tattoo

The paint work on Yung LA’s face tattoo has barely dried, but one displeased party is already calling for him to cover it up. LA’s ink has a close resemblance with the logo for Duct Tape Entertainment [see below], home to Co-CEOs/rappers Alley Boy and Big Bank Black, and AB told that the Atlanta rapper didn’t get the label’s approval for the tat.

“He didn’t sit down with any of the heads at Duct Tape,” Alley told, clarifying that LA is not signed with the imprint. “[Yung LA] aint’ get the okay from none one of us and ain’t none one of us told you nothin’ about you having nothing to do with Duct Tape. You dead wrong.”

To the casual observer, LA’s tattoo is just a duck. To Alley, the logo represents loyalty. “There are people willing to lay down their life for that logo, we’re a real close knit family,” said the Duct Tape honcho , who’s also signed to Atlantic Records as an artist.

Asked what he believes was the motivation behind the artwork, Alley said: “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,” Alley added. “It’s like an ex-boyfriend name or somethin’, he finna get that shit covered-up.”

Claiming that T.I.’s Grand Hustle imprint, is no longer Yung’s label home, Alley thinks the “Ain’t I” rapper tried to associate himself with Duct Tape in order protect himself in his hometown. “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.’

As of press time Yung LA has yet to return phone calls for comment.

  • jermaine crutchfield

    Well learn proper english, makes your point come across better. The issue of a symbol being copied: sue him, dont ever admit to wanting to do harm to someone and then do it. You are actually admitting guilt and then no one can get you out of the following law situation. Zone Six: I do understand there will always be turf wars and some worse than others, but ignorance is fueled by ignorant people. In another words : “Violence begets violence” and “stupid is as stupid does”. People, and yes this includes the artists, need to stopped being brainwashed into thinking being “G” is gang violence related. You are only as good as your mindset.


    why this bitch nigga gotta steal on dude? be a man, fight that dude one one one, give him a square fade.


  • Straight Hatter

  • 62banger

    too much lean & coke i guess lol i could understand his desperation though. he said some stupid shit about grand hustle & everybody knows T.I. pretty much run atlanta (along with jeezy & them). people lose respect for you when you diss something that holds such a so much power in the streets. knowing that, he probly thought if he could get duct tape to fuck wth him then he wouldnt have to worry
