NBA YoungBoy is getting mixed reactions about wearing makeup.
The rapper sported a “new look.” His face is lighter in his video for “Black Ball,” and he’s rocking black lipstick/black eyeshadow. He also had “rock” and “peace” across his face.
During a Clubhouse Conversation with DJ Akademiks, the Baton Rouge rapper explained why. YB said he likes how it makes him feel. “I like doing my face, I like painting my face or putting makeup on.” He continued, “I like to look in the mirror and see everything black, my eyes and sh*t.” He added, “That’s 100 percent real. That’s me being myself. I feel comfortable in a way.”
