The feds may be watching, but that won't stop 2 Chainz from cooking up for his new album "B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time." The "Feds Watching" rapper announced that he would attempt to make rap history by releasing a cookbook to accompany his September 10 new album release.
On the heels of the success from his debut album " Based on a T.R.U. Story," Tity Boi is preparing to not only dominate the rap charts but the best seller charts as well. He recently sat down with Power 105.1's DJ Self and revealed the album will come with a cookbook. Chainz said he wants to show people that he eats healthy due to medical issues and its because he eats "like a white person."
2 Chainz told DJ Delf:
When I see my Instagram people say 'you eat like a white person'. People don't know that I have huge stomach issues. I have ulcers, I have acid reflux, so, certain supplements or certain prescriptions that I take is not something that people may think I'm abusing. I really have prescriptions for certain things... so of course I've got a chef, and I have to eat a certain way. By me eating a certain way, it has changed my life. I've got a glow, it's about what I'm putting inside my body.
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, how ever many songs it is, 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... 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, you know? I eat multiple meals a day... I treat this rap like a sport, that's my angle... very few athletes eat fried food all day long, or all month long... it clogs up arteries, cholesterol, and things of that nature. Black people, the leading cause of death is high blood pressure. All that kind of comes from what you eat, so yeah, I eat salads and stuff like that.
Not sure how 2 Chainz will tie the tracklist for the album to the recipes, or if these are recipes he actually cooks since he has a chef. However the innovation and good intent is there.
