Lil Baby Explains Why He Doesn’t Have Any Tattoos
Tattoos are common place in hip hip now days but rising star Lil Baby has not a single one. The rapper has over 11 billion streams but remains low key. In a recent interview with the NY Times, Lil Baby says, “Most people are acting like more than what they are, I’m acting like less than what I am.”
He continues, “I never saw me being a rapper. A big-dog dope boy, that’s it. Not even just a dope boy. That’s why I ain’t got no tattoos, because I always knew I was going to run my money up, and I was going to have to go sit in front of some people to do something with my money. And I didn’t want them to look at me like a dope boy. I had to keep my appearance straight. I literally said, “When I sit down in front of these white folks, I don’t want to have no tattoos.” In a way, it’s still that today. Because when I’m sitting in these meetings, I don’t have tattoos on my face. I know they’d have to think something if I’ve got tattoos on my face.” He adds that he’s never met another rapper who didn’t have any tattoos.
