Lil Nax X spent Thanksgiving with First We Feast and Hot Ones host Sean Evans and while Nas X scarfed down chicken wings adorned with various hot sauces, the two discussed Nas’ time learning how to make a panini with Chef Gordon Ramsey.
The opportunity came up after Lil Nas X’s song, “Panini” and he tweeted that he wanted Gordon on the remix.
Instead, Nas X was invited into Chef Ramsey’s kitchen to remix an actual panini made with bao buns, kimchi, and yuzu mayonnaise.
Nas X said the experience made him a more confident artist and he joked about Ramsey’s television persona saying, “If you yell at people more, it’s definitely going to make the food taste amazing.”
