(bomb explodes)(bell dings) ♪ Hey, yo feel this ♪I'm gonna show y'all my gym, and I'm gonna show y'all my fridge.
Come on, let's go.
My biggest problem in lifewas overcomin' myself.
But once I defeated myself, the only thing left was peace.
♪ Took a lot of losses, had to bounce back ♪ ♪ She got ass, love itwhen it bounce back ♪ ♪ Came back strong, had to bounce back ♪ ♪ Applying pressure, watcha nigga bounce back ♪ – [Host] All right Kevin, we are here to see your fridge andthen check out your gym.
You ready? Let's go.
– Before I open my fridge, I'm a tell you this one thing I am human.
I am not perfect.
Please don't judge me.
(laughs) Don't judge me, please'cause I don't judge.
Check it out.
Let's get the hardstuff out the way first.
I do drink Pepsi.
I drink a Pepsi, like, maybe once a week or somethin' like that.
That's my reward.
That's my cheat.
The most important thing, if you dealin' with somebody and your partner has ahigh, high sex drive, sex can feel draining at times.
So, if you feel drained after havin' sex, always drink you some coconutwater right afterwards.
And the coconut water hasa lotta electrolytes in it.
Charge! You back in the building.
– [Host] Do you take any protein? – I take this.
It's called BeLean.
It leans you out, andit's also a pre-workout.
I tried a lot of other pre-workouts, and I don't like those pre-workouts that give me the jitters.
They make me feel like my face, I feel like Tony Montana.
I don't like to feel like that.
– [Host] So what do youeat after a performance? – Me being Muslim, Ionly eat one meal a day.
So my one meal a day, I guess you others would call it intermittent fasting.
My one meal a day may be a steak.
Sometimes it just may be a veggie bowl.
It just depends on how I feel.
– [Host] What time do you usually eat? – It depends.
It depends on when Iget finished with work.
Because I'm an artist, I can't go in the studio on a full stomach.
I like to be hungry.
I like the music to reflect my hunger 'cause I'm hungry for this shit.
I want this shit.
– [Host] I see you got a lot of mangoes.
– I'm a tell you, I don't want to just get that sexually explicit.
But with the mangoes Ipractice eating pussy.
What you want to do is, you want to see if you could pull those microfibers off with just your teeth.
You want to tease.
And if you could tease, they call that teasing a peach.
If you can tease a peach, youcan give a woman pleasure.
I drink milk thistle.
It detox the kidneys.
I stopped takin' fish oil.
I take C buckthorn now.
And what C buckthorn is, it lubricates the joints.
It's like an omega.
And I noticed it workedbetter than fish oil for me.
I mean, whatever you use foryour body, that's what's up.
I could just give you my diet.
– [Host] Do you eat dairy? – I used to love cow's milk until I discovered oat milk.
I noticed that whenever Iwould drink a lotta milk, like cow's milk, my bodywould have a lot of mucus.
And I don't like mucus.
It's gross to me.
– [Host] You've had along journey into fitness.
How were you able tosuccessfully change your diet? – I wanted more for myself.
I wanted it.
I got tired of beingthe fat guy in the room.
I got tired of being a fat slob.
I got tired of every timesomebody take their shirt off, I make an excuse whyI don't think its cool to take your shirt off.
I think it's fly.
'Cause it's one thing aboutsayin' that you're disciplined.
But when you see somebodywho got a nice body, it shows that you're disciplined.
So I like actions.
What I utter with my mouth, I feel like my actions should prove.
So, like I said, I'm notwhere I want to be yet.
But, hey, I'm damn sure gonna get there.
♪ I'm the greatest ♪ (dramatic hiphop music) ♪ Oh, oh ♪ ♪ Oh, yeah, oh ♪ ♪ I'm the greatest ♪ – [Host] All right, Kev, where are we? – I come to the magic mountain every time I get a chance.
I love it up here.
– [Host] Is this your cardio? – Well, no this isn't my cardio.
I look at this as my healing.
Like, this is post-workout for me.
This is just something I like to do.
I'm a outside person.
I'm a nature lover.
So I do this everyday, everyday that I can.
– [Host] Do you have a musicplaylist you listen to? – I'm not doing it today, but usually I have my headphones on.
And I'll listen at whatever production that I like at the time.
And I walk up magic mountain, and I get magical ideas, and I go record it in the studio.
– [Host] How long does ittake you to get to the top? – Maybe ten minutes for me.
But it takes, like, a little longer 'cause once I get tothe top of the mountain, I like to stand on the of the mountain and flex just be like, “I'mthe King of the world!” I am Muhammad Ali! You know I like to get up there.
So it may take a little longer 'cause sometimes I liketo bask in my own glory.
– [Host] Do you take any fitness classes? – I don't even talk about this, but I'm going to say it with y'all.
I'm a share it with y'all.
When I was in the penitentiary, my celly used to always tell me, “Hey let's go do yoga.
“Let's go do yoga.
” I'm like, “Man, yoga is for pussies “I never want to do yoga.
” I have a different respect for yoga now.
I look at yoga like a journey.
And I'm still in thebeginning stage of my journey.
But I love yoga.
(mellow hiphop music) – [Host] What was the inspiration behind your hit song “Push It?” – The inspiration behind”Push It” was a lot of times in life we are our biggest challenges.
We stand in our own way.
And for the longest, I'vealways stood in my own way, whether it been from my insecurities or me bein' too sensitiveto certain situations or me bein' selfish andwantin' things to go my way and not learnin' howto coexist with things.
And with he song “PushIt, ” it was me pushin' all of those things to the side.
Pushin' through all the hurt.
Pushin' through all the depression and really tryin' tobecome the best version of me that I could ever become.
And, like I say, the beautiful thing about having body dysmorphia is you could never see yourself as perfect.
So I don't even allow myselfto get depressed about that.
I just work hard.
I'm Muhammad Ali! I'm the king of the world! (laughs) Mighty.
(upbeat hiphop music) Yeah, I just finishedwalking on magic mountain.
And it was (growls) very, very, very.
I just feel like I did something.
It was good.
But anyway, long story short.
Usually I get up at 2:00a.
in the morning.
And that's when I go do I guess some weight training.
I do my pull ups.
I do my core exercises.
Light days I do calisthenics, like garage calisthenics, such as pull ups, push ups, dips.
I like that, it justkeep me tight and right.
– [Host] All right, now it's time for our rapid fire questions.

It was great havin' you.
But now I need you the leave.
Before you can't leave.
