Rapper 2 Chainz doesn’t just drop rhymes and smoke a lot of green – dude is also a foodie and he wants to share the love, taking a page from fellow rapper Raekwon and releasing his own cookbook as a companion to his sophomore album B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time (Based On A TRU Story 2).
Mr Chainz told New York City radio Power 105 that he suffers from acid reflux and ulcers and has had to alter his diet accordingly:
“I’m cool enough to be comfortable in my own skin and try to educate people, so with this cookbook I’m gonna have probably about 14 to 15 meals, [based on how] many songs [the album has], that’s gonna tell you what was used to make these as far as ingredients, and cooking time and all of that stuff, and probably the pros and the cons of eating it.”
He also disclosed that he doesn’t eat beef or pork at all, instead being fond of our aquatic friends on his dinner plate. “I’m a seafood lover, I don’t eat beef or pork, period, so turkey, chicken, that’s a lot of the recipes I use and eat every day. It clogs up arteries, cholesterol, and things of that nature.”
He finished with a public health warning. “Black people, the leading cause of death is high blood pressure.” There you go, folks. You heard it from Dr Chainz first.
We also suspect that getting shot at outside a medicinal marijuana dispensary in Oakland may be hazardous to your health, another activity that 2 Chainz knows all about.
