The Featuring Ty Dolla $ign star has Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain tattooed on the back of his leg, which he told Spin in 2019 when he re-created Cobain’s iconic black-and-white cover for the magazine.
“The first time I ever actually loved a rock song was ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ and then it made me go and listen to all of his sh–. I wish he would have lived longer to really give off everything and I wonder what he would sound like right now,” he said during the cover story interview. “I definitely wanted to pay homage to Kurt because he’s the rock star of rock stars. I’m just a sex symbol, I’m trying to get there.”
