Two of the biggest names working at the intersection of pop and hip hop have come together for a collaboration – of sorts. Sydney musician and Kamilaroi man, The Kid LAROI, hit up US artist Post Malone for some new ink.
In a video shared on LAROI’s TikTok, he displays a freshly inked tattoo on his thigh. The TikTok is captioned, “Cowboy with clogs boiiiii!” and that indeed appears to be what it is. Post Malone is pictured wiping blood off the design. Find images below.
Malone is tattooed from head to toe, including a number of tattoos on his face and scalp. He’s known to have previously given tattoos to those close to him. Judging by a recent Instagram post featuring a shirtless LAROI with his girlfriend, Katarina Deme, LAROI’s body appears to be largely ink free.
The post in question teases a new song, potentially called ‘I Guess It’s Love’. It was apparently produced by production duo FNZ and mixed by Mike Dean.
LAROI’s official debut album is due out this year. LAROI spoke about his aims for the project in a long-form interview with Billboard last October. “I feel like as I keep going, people will start to see me more for me,” he said. “I think that’s already happening. Hopefully with this album, people will really start to separate me as my own person.”
He also explained his habit of wearing sunglasses in public. “[They’re a defence against] people trying to figure out what I’m thinking,” he said.
