NBA YoungBoy Says Wearing Makeup Makes Him Feel ‘Comfortable’

Written by on December 8, 2021

YoungBoy Never Broke Again is sporting a new look.

The Baton Rouge rapper can be seen wearing face makeup in his new music video for “Black Ball,” which was shot while he was under home confinement. In the clip, his eyes and lips are covered with dark makeup, while the words “Rock” and “Peace” are written on his cheeks.

While speaking with DJ Akademiks on Clubhouse, the 22-year-old opened up about his “goth” appearance and newfound love for makeup.

“I like doing my face, I like painting my face or putting makeup on,” said YoungBoy. “I like to look in the mirror and see everything black, my eyes and shit.”

He admitted that it makes him feel good. “That’s 100 percent real. That’s me being myself. I feel comfortable in a way.”

The Grammy-nominated MC clarified that he is not wearing face paint and that he goes to MAC Cosmetics for his makeup. “That’s some shit from MAC,” he said. “I made my engineer go buy it. It give me like the goth feeling, like rockstar or some shit.”

YoungBoy remains on house arrest following his release from prison in late October. His long-awaited joint project with Birdman, From the Bayou, was slated to drop last week, but is now expected to arrive this Friday.
