Martin Luther King Did Not March For This — Or Did He? Lil Scrappy Gets Obama Tattooed On His Stomach

November 16, 2012  |

In ratchet news (or not so ratchet news depending on how you feel about it), “Love & Hip-Hop Atlanta” reality star Lil Scrappy recently demonstrated his patriotism and love for the nation’s 44th President Barack Obama by strolling into a tattoo parlor and having the artist on duty draw on a rather large image right in the middle of his stomach. What was the tattoo of you ask? It was a rather unique image of a one hundred dollar bill with President Obama’s face smack dab in the middle of it.

While some felt his new work of body art was yet another demonstration of the Atlanta rapper’s ignorance, others are seeing it from a live-and-let-live perspective. Basically, Scrappy is expressing his love, respect and admiration of America’s first African American President in his own unique way.

I personally don’t know how I feel about the stomach tat, but I suppose there are things far more outrageous that people (celebrities included) get tattooed on themselves on a regular basis. As you allow your brain to take a stroll down ignorant tattoo memory lane, be sure to remember the crazed fan who got that Drake forehead tattoo or even Gucci Mane’s silly ice-cream tattoo, which he conveniently had put on the right side of his face. We won’t even mention Lil Wayne, Tyga or Souljah Boy. And what about the people we know in our own lives? I cringe every time I think about this guy I used to date who went out and got this enormous Moet & Chandon bottle tattooed on his larger-than-life stomach as if he had some sort of stock in the company or something. Actually, now that I think about it, I’d say there are far worst (and ignorant) things Scrappy could’ve gotten tatted on his stomach.

What do you think Lil Scrappy’s latest tattoo?

      alright this better go on the funniest comments list for this week.

  • MIYO K.

    Why do people do President Obama like this? We have a biracial president and Black people do not know what to do with themselves.

    • get real

      You mean the biracial President who is being slaughtered on Twitter, Youtibe and Facebook as “N****R this” N word that” “I hope the N get killed” etc. I mean its N****R fest on social media. The man is blk you feminist troll. Maybe he should’ve got tat of Romney to satisfy your white washed behind.

      • MIYO K.

        So, I am a ‘feminist troll’ and ‘white washed’ for CORRECTLY stating that Obama is biracial? Please, just stop it. If you don’t know how to debate and be rationale like an adult, then stay off of the Internet. I typed out exactly what I meant, not what some random man who hangs out on women’s sites agrees with. And the last time I checked, Obama had a White mother and a Black father.

        This was a conversation about a tattoo that Lil Scrappy got and you are trying to turn it into a discussion about the racism and hatred that has been thrown upon President Obama and who you presume I am in favor of.

        Get Real, I am going to need you to not reply to my comments if you are going to have a temper tantrum.

        • Bishop

          I’m sorry Obama is a black man that identifies himself as a black man. He is a married to a black woman and they have black children. You can call him biracial if you want, I will call him a black man just like he call’s himself. No disrespect, but you make it seem as though Barack is suffering from the “Tiger Woods Identity Crisis Syndrome.”

          • MIYO K.

            I didn’t make it ‘seem’ like anything. I only presented the facts.

  • Hio

    Oh lord. We’ll just chalk this up to lingering excitement & leave it at that

  • Trouble

    Ugh, I knew he was ugly but his belly is too?! *gags* Please cover that ish up.

  • IllyPhilly

    He got money for that, but not child support???!!!

    • Trouble

      Lol right
