TEEN Mom Ashley Jones' baby daddy Bar Smith said he wanted to hire an agent to help "clean up his image."
This comes after Bar has been determined to turn around his life after a string of arrests and battling alcohol addiction.
Bar, 24, removed his face tattoos after rounds of lazer treatments and swapped out his wardrobe for a more sophisticated style.
His continued cry to turn his life around came with a Tweet re-shared to the rapper's Instagram.
Bar pleaded: "I need an agent, someone to connect me to brands and business!
"Y'all point me in the direction".
Fans left some recommendations for Bar.
One wrote that many of talent managers and agents "don't live up to expectations."
Bar responded directly and wrote: "Thank you so much, I definitely will need a publicist very soon, help me clean my image up a bit."
The Teen Mom rapper started his first day of college, but learned that 'visible tattoos' are not allowed as part of the dress code.
HE'S BEEN BARRED
Last week, Bar faced backlash from fans after posing with guns in the music video for his new song, Novacane.
But on Sunday, Bar seemed baffled as to why he was prohibited from filming Instagram Lives on the social media platform.
In a video shared to his Instagram Stories, Ashley Jones' fiancé said: "Bro, y'all really got me banned from going Live… like, why though?"
The reality star, who was sitting in his car at the time, persisted: "Like, why? That s**t's crazy."
Just days earlier, the father-of-one was slammed for posing with a gun in his music video – but insisted it was only a "prop used for artistic expression".
He showed off the gun at several points in the video, holding it up to his cheek before gesturing at the camera with it while performing in a dimly-lit room.
The MTV star shared the clip on Instagram on Wednesday and captioned it: "Should me @087roach drop 'Novacane'. Let us know!"
He added: "I do not condone violence or gang activity, all firearms shown in video are props used solely for artists expression."
Despite his disclaimer, Bar's fans flooded the comments with their dismay over him using a gun as a "prop".
A fan wrote: "Song is fire.
"Don't like the image portrayed with the guns."
Another added: "The gun is gross."
A third follower asked what kind of message Bar was sending to Holly, the four-year-old daughter he shares with Ashley.
"So what’s the point of a pistol???
"Aren’t you a public figure trying to make it out there in the rapping world.
"Pretty sure you make a rap video without a pistol in your hand.
The fan continued: "Remember your daughter is old enough to know what’s going on and sees.
"If she sees this video of you.
"What kind of parent does that make you?"
Back in July, Bar "fired a gun" at Ashley's college graduation party after the night's festivities got out of hand.
Cameras were not present to film the situation, though text onscreen explained: “The MTV crew left the party at 9pm.
"Later that night, police received a call that gun shots were fired.
"No injuries were reported.
The report explained: “Bar was arrested for willful discharge of a firearm in a negligent matter.”
BAR'S A STAR
However, many fans have noticed Bar's style shift as he switched to a sleeker look after his laser treatment to remove his face tattoos.
Bar looked "incredible" and "mature" in a black jacket, turtleneck and black pants.
Bar's inkings above his eyebrows looked less defined and visible in the photos after weeks of removal sessions.
The Teen Mom 2 star captioned the shots: "Minding my business."
The father-of-one's fans flocked to the comments to praise his sophisticated makeover.
"He's come a long way!" one gushed.
Another added: "He looks incredible.
"And so mature turning his life around."
In October, he started training to become a vet tech and shared a photo of his uniform on the first day.
The Kalashnikov Cousins singer donned gray scrubs in the selfie, which he posted on Instagram with the caption: "The journey began today."
