Lil Yachty Takes Over NYC Pizzeria for the Weekend
The rapper who recently celebrated his 20th birthday is taking his love for pizza to another level. To be honest, it’s more of a pizza obsession — the rapper claims he’s eaten pizza EVERYDAY since the 2nd grade! In fact, why don’t you just let Lil Yachty explain his diet to you:
No fruits, no vegetables, just pizza. What a life Lil Yachty lives.
Since the Atlanta rapper announced via Instagram he would be hosting a pop-up pizzeria, his fans — basically a bunch of teenagers — started lining up well before the event was set to start.
Famous Ben’s — or should I say Yachty’s Pizzeria — employees are expecting at least 2,000 fans to show up for the event on Friday and again on Saturday. Clearly, lots of pizza is about to be consumed, but this pop-up is more of a merch play.
Yachty’s Pizzeria menus list what merch people can purchase — a $30 t-shirt, a $30 hat, and a $100 satin bomber jacket — all of which sport the Yachty’s Pizzeria logo. Fans who purchase the satin bomber jacket will even receive it in a custom Yachty’s Pizzeria box!
If you are in the NYC, I would definitely recommend you check the spot out. The pizzeria is located at 177 Spring Street, near Thompson Street and will be transformed from Ben’s to Yachty’s from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. this Friday (8/25) and Saturday (8/26) ONLY.
You never know… you might even meet Lil Yachty! Which reminds me… Tyler, the Creator once offered me pizza while I was waiting in line for his concert. Ah, memories. I guess rap music and pizza kind of go hand in hand? Scratch that. Pizza goes well with EVERYTHING.
Before I leave you, I have one last thing to say… “SHOUT-OUT YACHTY, BUT THIS AIN’T A LIL BOAT.” To be completely honest, I only know who Lil Yachty is because of those Drake lyrics.”
