Lil Baby's lack of tattoos makes him a rarity in the rap game.

The Atlanta emcee explained why he keeps his body free of ink in an interview with the New York Times, in which he is described as "rap's most reluctant star."

“I never saw me being a rapper,” he explained. “A big-dog dope boy, that’s it. Not even just a dope boy. That’s why I ain’t got no tattoos, because I always knew I was going to run my money up, and I was going to have to go sit in front of some people to do something with my money. And I didn’t want them to look at me like a dope boy.

I had to keep my appearance straight. I literally said, ‘When I sit down in front of these white folks, I don’t want to have no tattoos.’ In a way, it’s still that today. Because when I’m sitting in these meetings, I don’t have tattoos on my face. I know they’d have to think something if I’ve got tattoos on my face."

Lil Baby's sophomore album My Turn drops tonight. Harder Than Ever did 71K first week.  What do you think Baby's follow up does?
