New Orleans’ own, Tokyo Vanity is catching some looks as of late. The rapper posted some photos on Instagram chronicling her fitness journey, garnering admiration and praise for her progress.
The photos themselves feature her adorning a waist trainer and workout gear captioned with, “Live in the flesh w/ me @whatwaistofficial sauna suit!” Her fans weren’t all who took notice of her weight loss.
Jayceon Taylor, better known as Compton rapper, The Game, dropped a flirtatious note to the female emcee via Instagram as a comment on one of her pictures. “Boyyyyyy …. Ahhhh wear dat ahh out,” wrote the “It’s Okay (One Blood”) recording artist. Vanity responded, “gone on [laugh emoji, laugh emoji, laugh emoji].
Fresh off the heels of her Valentine’s Day single, F— N***a Free, Tokyo has largely taken the Game’s approach with a heavy dose of levity. Others however, wonder if the Game was shooting his proverbial shot.
The Game recently stirred some controversy by saying he was the best rapper from Compton in a room on Clubhouse. He added some coals in the fire by deliberately boasting that he could rhyme better than Kendrick Lamar.
To his credit, he has been in “the game” longer and has a decent catalogue of hit music himself. However, fans weren’t giving his audacious claim a pass, which is entirely reasonable given how transcendent K.Dot’s music has been with critically acclaimed albums such as Good Kid, M.A.A.D City, the masterful To Pimp a Butterfly, and the evocative Damn.
While The Game’s words might be facetious to some degree, the compliment that they underlie was seconded by many others.
One Instagram user commented, “Toooook!!!! You look so good!!!! love to see it!!! And to think it all started from a vine [crying emoji] just happy to be along the journey.”
Another follower wrote, “See, I can appreciated when a person do it the right way, you putting in actual work and not surgery. And when you get to where you want, and you do get surgery, it won’t be so drastic til the point where you don’t know how to act.”
Let’s continue to celebrate and support Tokyo’s health and wellness pursuit.
