Soulja Boy is trying to better himself and decided that getting his tattoos removed would help him do so. The Atlanta rapper wanted to show his fans the process as a video of the procedure was uploaded online. The video, which you can see above, shows Soulja Boy getting the Gucci tattoo removed from his forehead. Soulja Boy also shared a message with the video.

"Recently I’ve been going through this process to get my tattoos removed, wanted to share the actual procedure," Soulja Boy wrote. "I appreciate all my friends, fans and family. We have to strive to be a better person everyday.”

After the Gucci tattoo was removed, Soulja Boy took to Vine to deliver another message to his fans.

"They don’t want you to remove tattoos off your face," Soulja Boy said. "They don’t want you to get money and live and look clean.”

Soulja Boy was recently involved in a beef with up-and-coming rapper Kodak Black. Black accused Soulja Boy of stealing his swag, which prompted a strong response from Soulja Boy on social media.

"Ay man, fuck Kodak Black, man. Pussy ass n—-. You mad ’cause I didn’t pull up to the studio with you and make a song with yo weak ass. We seen you hangin’ with Sean Kingston and Rich the Kid but you got a problem with Soulja, n—-? I’ll beat yo ass,” Soulja Boy said in a message which has since been deleted.
