2 Chainz wants the world to know he’s more than just a rapper; he’s a wiz in the kitchen, too.

The hip-hop artist teamed up with Atlanta-based Chef Aleem to create a special treat for fans who purchase his new album B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time — a digital cookbook of his favorite on-the-road dishes!

“Keep in mind that these recipes are intended to be made at 70 mph when you’re on a tour bus, so exact measurements can’t always be accommodated,” reads the introduction. “Keep in mind, all measurements are at the discretion of you palette. As we all know, some people have a lot of flavor, while others enjoy their food and their lifestyle a little more subtle (boring).”

2 Chainz goes on to say he’s “reaching into his deep, flavorful pockets to hook you up with recipes you’ll need for your time out on the road.”

With recipes like garlic mashed potatoes, teriyaki salmon and fried chicken, it’s defintiely a must-read for all the foodies of the world.
