Waffle House Screwed Over Its Biggest Fan, a Rapper Named Jelly Roll

"I'm 450 pounds — I should have sued Waffle House 10 years ago!"

A big thank-you to Gawker for introducing the world to Jason "Jelly Roll" DeFord, a 450-pound Tennessee rapper who's completely obsessed with Waffle House. The self-proclaimed "regular fat piece of white trash" released a free mixtape called "Whiskey, Weed & Waffle House" and made the grave mistake of printing the chain's logo on the cover. Waffle House got pissed, of course, and sent him a cease-and-desist letter. At first, Jelly Roll was flattered ("I was calling everybody, like, 'We're popular! Waffle House is trying to sue us!'"), but then the dispute left him sad and $10,000 poorer. Roll keeps crawling back to his former flame because he can't fight cravings for his favorite meal, the "All-Star Breakfast," which includes cheesy scrambled eggs, hash browns topped with cheese and ham, a chocolate-chip waffle, and toast. Let's make this man a real star. [Gawker]
