2Pac Affiliate EDI Mean Shows Off Impressive Weight Loss Journey
The Outlawz rapper is also back on the basketball court, taking on men 10 years his senior.
The COVID-19 pandemic has provided a unique opportunity for people to focus more on their mental and physical health, especially artists who are used to being on the road with often little time to exercise. Last week, The Outlawz’s EDI Mean showed off his impressive weight loss in an Instagram post as part of “Transformation Thursday.”
The photo provides a side-by-side look at EDI before and after his fitness journey began. He wrote in the caption, “#transformationthursday Today I reached a major milestone and I gotta share w y’all…. Maybe 10 years ago I played what I thought was my last game of 21 (basketball). I went up for a rebound and my back said nah. I was laid up for two weeks and just figured that part of my life was done.
“Fast forward to  21 and I just played two games with guys mostly 10 plus’s years younger than me…. We went 1-1 btw. I say all that to say, it can be done. P.S. the picture on the my left is me at 300.”

EDI Mean follows Busta Rhymes’ big reveal in October 2020. Shortly before unleashing Extinction Level Event 2: The Wrath Of God, Bus-A-Bus shared photos of his recent transformation with another side-by-side post which shows off his sizable beer belly and eventual six-pack.
“DON’T EVER GIVE UP ON YOURSELF!!” he wrote in all caps. “LIFE BEGINS RIGHT NOW!!! MY DEDICATION IS DIFFERENT!! I WOULD NEVER PUT OUT AN ALBUM AND NOT BE IN THE BEST SHAPE OF MY LIFE!! I RESPECT MYSELF TOO MUCH AND I RESPECT Y’ALL TOO MUCH!!! I’M ONLY HERE TO INSPIRE!!”
Several other rappers have been putting in the work to emerge from the pandemic in stellar shape. Megan Thee Stallion, Method Man, Lizzo and 2 Chainz have all embarked on fitness journeys of their own.
Last month, Megan revealed she’s started some intense workouts with the help of a personal trainer for a program she’s dub
