    I think B.Dot should celebrate the month by going bald and get a du-rag tat over his head.

    with all due respect….

    if Gibbs knew anything about the panthers and ESPECIALLY huey, he wouldn’t have that tattoo. he may have a huey tat, but not one replicating that particular picture.

    Gucci Mane voice : I could’ve put that ice cream cone tat on my back dawg instead of my face.

  • Nathaniel

    for what it’s worth… it’s dope though, i guess.

  • Dani Lee

    With all due respect, Nathaniel, if you really knew about the Panthers, you would know what they stood for in the beginning. They weren’t always so militant and violent. But that’s only if you knew.

    1. That looks nothing like Huey, more like a wavy haired white version of him.
    2. The Black Panther Party WAS a righteous group that stood for the progress of black America. Now its just another racist group along side the Tea Parties and Neo-Con Pro segregation groups.. No different just another shade of hate..

  • Nathaniel

    @Dani Lee

    that’s pretty much what i was saying, lol. Huey hated that picture. it was eldridge cleaver’s idea (who fucked the panthers up in a # of ways… sort of a vigilante, never a team player and injected too many of his own personal armed revolution type beliefs into what wasn’t even originally panthers ideology).

    huey says that photo haunted him throughout the panthers’s run… and it gave the perception that they just wanted to shoot shit up. (you shouldn’t assume what i know)

    and yes, they were always militant. it’s right there in their 10 pt program. they were never violent, they just believed in self-defense. peace.

  • Nathaniel

    @From Boston

    yep, you’re right. but the New Black Panther Party isn’t The Black Panther Party from the 60′s and 70′s. Bobby Seale has denounced those emtpy-rhetoric spewing idiots on several occasions. they don’t do SHIT but wear black and scream and shout. i see them from time to time. they’re just half-using the original panthers brand. smh

    a disgrace.

    Agrees with Nathaniel – the new black panther party and the original are nothing alike

  • Nathaniel

    …Gibbs is still my nigga, though. Str8 Killa No Filla is real shit. better huey, regardless of the pose, than some presidents face on a dollar bill, smh.

    @Nathaniel

    Yo real talk, you should teach a African American studies class or something if you dont already. Cuz I was ready to admire the tat until you broke it down for me about the meaning of that picture.

    wuttup my nigga, lol nah i don’t… maybe one day. i do want to do a lot with education in the future. still in my early twenties though, doin other shit along the same lines. work with a lot of young black males 13-18. i don’t wanna throw salt at Gibbs though. i know what his intentions were and i respect that. i didn’t mean to come off like “oh that nigga dumb blah blah” you know?

  • raw

    that is a great tattoo. powerful image.

  • COLD BLOOD

  • Jake

    oook well i just had to google what this dude really is supposed to look like and now i get why his hat on the tattoo looks like donald trumps comb over. this tattoo just doesn’t look at all like a black guy..but then again was huey even all black…or a little white or chinese in him? odd lookin guy

  • Damn Homie

    wack tattoo artist.. this shit’s weak. If you got dough.. get a top nigga to do it.. you got Nikko.. and Shawn barber out in cali.. killin it right now.. This looks like some local tat shop fuckery.. i can see on a small piece.. but on a FULL back piece.. nigga you gotta make sure that shit is tight.

    Ok idea.. but execution… #EPIC FAIL

  • Thank Me Hater

    I’m sorry….am I the only one that thinks a man with a tattoo of another man on his back is the very opposite of dope. Cmon!

  • Belize

    THAT is dope!
    Ink is sick!

  • puerto-black

    panthers introduced latchkey program, breakfest before school. Legal gun ownership and protect your community from drugs and violence. I dont think its a fair to compare the panthers to other groups because other groups didnt kill 4 lil girls at a church or lynch people. However, the other groups werent wiped out, villianized or under reported like the panthers……Google M.O.C.H.A. (Men Of Coler Helping All) is a international black firefighter group that continues the orignal idea of the panthers. M.O.C.H.A

  • YMCMB

    This is the gayest shit i ever seen! I man on your back wow what a fag!

  • real

    faggots in here are like 13 years old not even knowing the power of the panthers. motherfuckers talking shit while listening to drake.

    panthers> then your life.

    they died for you.

    @real. They don’t know any better but hopefully a tattoo starts the conversation on the difference between a rap “movement” and a real movement.

    HARDEST FUCKIN TAT I’VE EVER SEEN. PROPS TO FREDDIE GIBBS

    I’m gonna get a Huey Lewis tattoo

  • The Hater

    That is what Huey newton looked like u dumb fucks. Do ya homework before mommy lets you play on the computer

  • obama

    I agree with everybody on here talking bout the shitty execution of the tattoo… Shit looks like a bootleg comic book cover… Knowing the history of the photo only makes it worse… As far as “Gangsta” Gibbs and his theoretical talent… Real simple.. If he actually is dope, he’ll be recognized for it… He got in the game based on a cosign from a white dude, and he’s gets shit-faced drunk at pretty much every venue he performs at. So as far as trying to portray him as some modern day revolutionary (ie Huey)… Get the fuck outta here with that bullshit son!! He’s just another dude trying to get rich off of making words rhyme…

    I believe he posed liked that at the time to support the right to bear arms! Even if it wasn’t its all about what it means to you! What you make it mean. So if yall don’t know what that mans intentions were when he put that tat on his back then what is all he negative discussion for? Yall will trip on a powerful image of a black man but watch the buffoons on maury all day. Listen to the music and live in the 219 and you will get that tat all day! I bet half of u closed minded nay sayers have a picture of a white Jesus in your house to with relaxed slicked back hair! Check the history on that and STFU!!!!
