2 Chainz Prefers Vegetables From His Backyard Garden

Perhaps surprisingly for someone on the brink of dropping his sixth studio album, 2 Chainz isn’t stressed in the slightest. In fact, he’s feeling better than ever. Over the past six months, the rapper’s been dialing in a healthier lifestyle, which he credits for making him feel on top of his game. (Despite a ridiculous sleep schedule—the man behind “I’m Different” typically goes to bed at 7 a.m.)

GQ recently caught up with 2 Chainz to chat intermittent fasting, his backyard garden, the one food he wishes he’d eat less.

GQ: What time does your day start?

2 Chainz: My day begins at night because I’m an artist, and I’m up all night. I literally go to sleep about 6:30 or 7:00 every morning. I spend my nights recording, in my man cave of sorts. I’m an only child, and I don’t really consider myself having best friends after my father passed. So, it’s a lot of “me time” at night. My engineer hangs with me, his name’s Nolan, and I appreciate him. And of course my dog named Trappy, he’s my emotional support animal. We go everywhere together; he’s about 5 years old.

Anyway. The day technically starts once I wake up around 12:30 or 1 p.m.

What’s the first thing you do when you wake up in the afternoon?

I drink a bottle of water. Then, I go to the gym on an empty stomach. After the gym, I like to get my protein in because I do a hard workout, so that’s important. My smoothie contains a plant-based protein, cinnamon, and powdered peanut butter. By the time I have it, I’m starving. It’s the first thing I put into my body during the day because I do this thing called intermittent fasting, so I’m only eating
