Lochlan Posted February 3, 2011 Share Posted February 3, 2011 Posted 2/2/11 1:00 pm ET by MTV News in Music NewsBy Alvin Blanco Before Gucci Mane, Mike Tyson was the original hip-hop friendly celebrity to debut a facial tattoo. The former heavyweight champion of the world recently phoned into DJ Whoo Kid’s Shade 45 radio show and spoke on a bunch of topics including fellow boxer Floyd Mayweather and Gucci Mane’s infamous ice cream cone tattoo. Whoo Kid and Tyson discussed what Mayweather, who has recently partnered with 50 Cent to create the film production company Mayweather Productions, means to the sport of boxing. "There’s always different classes of guys that are great boxers," Tyson said. "Floyd’s at his level now where he’s taking boxing to the next level. The world is watching him now. There’s no great heavyweights or anything so he’s carrying the whole boxing world on his shoulders." The Brownsville, Brooklyn native also spoke on Gucci’s infamous Ice Cream tat. Mike Tyson’s tattoo is actually a tribal tattoo whose design is inspired by the Maori people of New Zealand. Tyson admitted he wasn’t actually familiar with the rapper’s facial décor, but once Whoo Kid described Gucci’s tattoo (three scoops of ice cream in a cone), Tyson said, "Ya know, I like going to war, he likes being licked on." Tyson then playfully added, "I watch Gucci Mane. Gucci Mane’s a player man, he got it going on man, Gucci Mane." Tyson and his wife, Lakiha Spicer Tyson, recently welcomed a new baby boy named Morocco Elijah. Tyson’s new reality series, "Taking Tyson," which focuses on his love for raising pigeons, debuts on Animal Planet on March 6. MTV NewsHere's the Gucci Mane Face tattoo that is being referred.
