Former Grand Hustle signee Alley Boy sparked a beef with Yung L.A. after the rapper tattooed a duck on his face, the same symbol used as the logo for his new label home Duct Tape Entertainment. Even after L.A. covered the tattoo, Alley took offense, videotaping him and his crew beating on L.A. for the disrespect.
Now, Alley Boy is speaking out on the incident, explaining why he decided to make the beef physical. “L.A. disrespected me. And it wasn’t about the tattoo at all,” he told The Fader. “What happened in the video, that wasn’t a set up. I just so happened to be there and he came over there. He’s coming out of a bathroom. He knew I was there. I saw him when he went in the bathroom, that’s when I was like, ‘He must think we cool.’ So I was like, Imma beat this motherfucker’s ass.”
Alley claims that L.A. also showed disrespect by posting a defiant video on WorldStarHipHop. “My buddies, they knew about it, but it wasn’t no thing planned. It was nothing like that. Period,” he continued. “I was just like, Imma a beat his ass for talking his shit to me. They didn’t really want me to do it. But I was like, I don’t care, he disrespected me. L.A. saying I asked him to take the logo out his face and he put a video out on World Star saying, ‘Fuck what they said. I got goons behind me.’ Oh really? You really gonna go there with me, and you know me? There was more behind it all than the tattoo, that’s what it was.”
Putting the controversy in the past, Alley is focusing on recording two new mixtapes, one of which is titled The Definition of Fuck Shit 2 that will be hosted by DJ Holiday. He recently hit the studio with Killer Mike for the project, which he hopes to release in June.
