It's no secret that rappers like to live large. Money, strippers, cars. You know, the most common music video tropes.
But that doesn't mean that they can't enjoy the simple pleasures in life, too. Waka Flocka Flame is known to go hard in the paint, but when it comes to his diet, you won't find him dining on silver platters of eggs, steak, and Welch's grape, à la Biggie Smalls. No, no—our man Waka is a vegan. And a vegan who likes baking, no less.
Waka Flocka Flame and his right-hand man Raury recently joined us on our series
to demonstrate how to make one of Waka's breakfast favourites: blueberry muffins. And not only are these muffins super spot-hitting in the morning (or after a blunt hit); they're also fitting to serve anyone from your sweet, animal-loving auntie to the whole ATL crew.
Gloriously free of eggs and dairy, they instead get their moist, muffiny qualities from coconut milk and coconut oil. Lemon zest, vanilla, and a pinch of black salt round out their rich yet so-fresh flavour.
RECIPE: Vegan Blueberry Muffins
If they're good enough for Waka, you know they're going to be a grand slam. And not the kind you get at a greasy diner with a side of bacon. Vegans, Waka just made you a little cooler. Thank him by making these bad boys.
