Celebrities are just like us, and just like us, they occasionally like to dine out and leave reviews on Yelp. Well, at least Long Beach's own Vince Staples does. The Summertime '06 rapper recently found himself on the road and in Kentucky to perform a show and at one point, apparently decided to stop in for a bite at Royals Hot Chicken in Louisville. Ultimately, he ended up enjoying the food and the experience so much that he decided to leave the establishment a glowing review on Yelp.
“For one I been to Kentucky never seen a KFC that's based on a true story and this IS the true story. We pulled up the night of Bryson Tiller's homecoming show so we knew we were meant to be grown and sexy on this occasion. Pause. Press play. The menu is on the wall as a warning of things to come. You WILL go stupid. Pick your heat then pick your sauce we even go vegan s/o to Tofu Ty. But a man like me needs Pimento cheese on the medium please and don't you dare hold that grease. This is America. Home of the brave and land of the free. The meal might as well had been free because the prices are out of this planet. If you love your life and you love freedom then you must visit. The Civil War wasn't won for you to remain ignorant. F–k the Colonel.”
The review was up for eight days before people found it and began spreading it around social media. Shortly after he was discovered on the review site, fans began bombarding Staples with links to their Soundcloud pages so he decided to just delete his Yelp profile. What a shame.
Xxl blew up the Yelp spot got niggas sending me soundcloud links and shit. This is Boof.

Here's a screenshot in case Yelp or Staples decides to take down the review at some point.
