Gucci Mane’s got no shortage of ink on his body, but his newest tatt is definitely causing some heads to turn.
Last night tattoo artist Jason Murray tweeted that La Flare hit up his parlor in Atlanta, days after being released from his stint at a mental health/rehab facility, where he asked for an ice cream cone drawn on his face.
The piece, which nearly covers the entire right side of his face, features the rapper’s “Brr” catchphrase on the cone as well as what appear to be flames or lightening bolts shooting from the top of the ice cream and the sides (fire and ice … ). Gucci apparently isn’t one to skimp on his desserts either, his ice cream cone has three (yes, three!) scoops. Gucci has referenced “ice” in his music before, on tracks like “So Icy” with Young Jeezy, “Ice Game” with Zaytoven and his own take on Wu-Tang’s “C.R.E.A.M.”
Gucci, who recently dropped “Gucci Rag Top” with Chicago hipster MC Kid Sister, was arrested on November 2 when police discovered him driving on the wrong side of the road. Police needed to use pepper spray to subdue the rapper but he was later released. The traffic charges against the “Lemonade” lyricist were eventually dropped. Earlier this month Gucci appeared in court for a probation hearing related to the incident. Records from the Fulton County Superior Court Clerk’s office obtained by MTV News reveal Gucci Mane filed a “special plea of mental incompetency” on December 27 indicating he is unable to “intelligently participate” in the revocation process.
Gucci is scheduled to appear in court on January 24.
What do you think of Gucci’s ice cream tattoo? Is it too over the top or, perhaps not crazy enough? What do you think the tatt represents? Tweet us at @MTVRapFix or tell us in a comment below!
