Kanyeโ€™s Jamaican Moment: โ€œI hit the Jamaican spot, at the bar, take a seat. I ordered the jerk, she said you are what you eat.โ€

Naturally weโ€™d like to think that the Jamaican spot Kanye is referring to is our second home, Miss Lilyโ€™s in New York City. Kanye did recently celebrate his 36th birthday at downtown Manhattanโ€™s central place for authentic Jamaican cuisine and good music. In fact, he goes back to the early days when Miss Lilyโ€™s first opened in 2011, and has been spotted there frequently ever since. But given that My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy was released in 2010, chances are he’s probably referring to another Jamaican spot. Whether it’s somewhere on Church Ave. in Brooklyn, or down in MIA, we’re glad to hear that heโ€™s a fan of jerk seasoning.
