Following the launch of Yachty’s Pizzeria in NYC last month, rapper Lil’ Yachty is celebrating his second pop-up pizzeria at Delicious Pizza in Hollywood this weekend September 16-17. The Atlanta-born hop-hop artist is offering Angelenos a unique opportunity to enjoy an iconic west coast slice while shopping limited-edition exclusive merchandise inspired by Yachty’s Pizzeria. The collection is presented in partnership with Bravado, with five styles available for purchase at the pop-up including short sleeve tees for $30, long sleeve tee for $40, hoodie for $60, satin bomber jacket for $100 and hats for $30.
Delicious Pizza established in 2015, is a family business started by father and son duo Fred Sutherland (Fred 62) and Travis Sutherland and brothers Michael and Rick Ross, owners of the iconic L.A. hip-hop record label Delicious Vinyl, the name behind superstar hip hop acts The Pharcyde (Passin Me By), Tone Loc (“Wild Thing” “Funky Cold Medina”) & Young MC (“Bust a Move”) and many more. Memorabilia from Delicious Vinyl and the golden era of hip-hop lines the walls and the music is a mix of old school jams and classics. Delicious Pizza’s pies and golden-era hip-hop memorabilia and music have made it a destination for local residents and music fans alike.
As far as the slices, Delicious Pizza uses an all-organic grain mix fermented with a home-grown natural yeast starter for its dough and offers unconventional toppings (like soppressata, ricotta and fontina cheeses, and house-made sausage) for its hip-hop-themed pies (think: Cheeza Cheeza and The Slaughterhouse).
