Now here’s a rapper-led pop-up we can get behind. While everyone and their cousin is out there doing played out merch pop-ups, Lil’ Yachty is taking over Famous Ben’s in SoHo for the weekend, turning it into his very own pop-up pizzeria. Yes, there will be merch (like a very dope satin bomber jacket for a cool $100) but there will also be pizza. Yachty has promised that he will be there, so prepare to wait in lines with a bunch of kids who are way too extra.
A pizzeria is an appropriate move for the rapper, given that he claims to have eaten pizza every day since the second grade. Personally I think that’s an exaggeration, but it makes for a nice pull quote. Plus, if I got super rich as a teen, I’d probably spend all my money on pizza, too.
Anyway, stop by this weekend for a limited edition “Lil’ Yachty Slice.” What comes on the slice remains to be seen, but you’re just getting it for the custom box so it doesn’t really matter.
Lil’ Yachty’s Pizzeria is open today and tomorrow from 12-7pm at Ben’s Pizzeria, 177 Spring Street New York, NY.
