2016 has been the year of Lil Yachty. Between appearing on D.R.A.M.’s hit single "Broccoli" and starring alongside LeBron James in a new Sprite campaign, it’s easy to forget that the Atlanta-bred rapper is only 19-years-old. And, like any teenager who recently hit it big in the rap game, Yachty is living his life the only way he knows how—by eating copious amounts of pepperoni pizza.
In a recent interview with the YouTube channel 88rising, Lil Boat discussed his love for Dragon Ball Z between freestyles. But when the conversation shifted to the rapper’s favorite Asian food, Yachted dropped a bomb. Not only does the artist stay away from all types of Asian cuisine, he claims to exclusively eat pizza every single day.
“I've been doing it for years," he says matter-of-factly. “[I’ve been doing it since,] like, second grade. I eat pizza every day for my whole life. That's just my life now."
Unsurprisingly, the interviewer wonders aloud how Yachty manages to stay fit.
"I'm not." Yachty admits. "I'm tired as hell!"
Maybe the rapper’s diet explains Yachty’s failed dunk attempt at ComplexCon earlier this month. Hey, you try to hoop after either nothing but tomato sauce and cheese for 10 years!
