Happy Foodie Friday: 2 Chainz has the BEST Food Pics EVER!

Truuuuu!

Truuuuu!

Hey Y’all!

Okay so Happy Foodie Friday is something I literally just made up. Lol. It’s not a real thing, but it sounded kind of official and I’m always looking for ways to incorporate food into stuff. If you follow me on Instagram, @theessenceof_, you’ve probably seen me repost a few of Mr. 2 Chainz’s food pics. Who would have thought the “Mainstream Ratchet” artist would have such an elaborate and exciting palette? I follow a lot of foodie people and I’ve gotta tell ya that he is by far my fave. He posts A LOT of seafood, which is my personal favorite, and spins on traditional southern entrees. So, I thought a blog post full of pics of his food was nothing less than mandatory to start off this fabulous Friday. You guys have gotta see this and follow him on Instagram @hairweavekiller! Check out the pics below and Happy Foodie Friday!

Disclaimer: While I do treasure your views, you may not want to look if you’re really hungry. I made the mistake of scrolling through his IG one time when I was hungry and it made me kind of angry. Wait until your tummy is satisfied.
