Not one to be bested by the ice cream coned visage of fellow rapper Gucci Mane, Yung L.A. took to the chair to have a huge angry pink dunk permanently tattooed on the left side of his face. And not one to miss out on a marketing opportunity Yung LA videotaped a large part of the process to share with his fans and promote his new mix tape titled Tattoos and Jewelry due out March 15.
Oh, and he is no longer with Grand Hustle! (There are actually 12,000 bits of information in the clip thanks to a 90 mph Yung LA.)
Here’s the full video courtesy of WorldStarHipHop.com, but be warned that there is a good deal of foul language as well as multiple references to the purple sizzurple Yung LA is using as fuel for his spirited performance throughout the process:
I’m sure the tattoo world has some sort of globally recognized awards ceremony and I would like to officially nominate the artist from this video for the Steady Hand Award!

So, it could be assumed that after leaving T.I.’s Grand Hustle label Yung L.A. has signed with Duct Tape Entertainment. If not, then the foul facial fowl is even more ridiculous! Here’s the cover from The Mob:
