2 Chainz is currently prepping his sophomore album, B.O.A.T.S. II, but aside from music, the project will include a unique companion: a cookbook.
After tweeting about it over the weekend, the Atlanta rapper unveiled details behind the book in a recent interview with DJ Self, while offering his reasoning behind its release.
“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,” 2 Chainz explained.
Apparently, the rapper has health issues, such as acid reflux and ulcers, so his diet is important… which served as inspiration behind the forthcoming cookbook.
“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,” he says. “It clogs up arteries, cholesterol, and things of that nature. Black people, the leading cause of death is high blood pressure.”( Via Ballerstatus.com)
