Following up on the success of his New York City pop-up, rapper Lil’ Yachty is dropping a surprise pizza experience this weekend only in Los Angeles.

The so-called Yachty’s Pizzeria will take over the existing Delicious Pizza on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. It’s only for Saturday and Sunday though, so expect long lines for slices and lots of merch for sale, including jackets, hats and t-shirts emblazoned with the Yachty’s Pizzeria name.

Lil’ Yachty partnered with Bravado to bring the first pizza pop-up in New York City to life last month, and lines stretched for blocks with fans just trying to get a glimpse of the rapper stepping through the door. So why pizza? Yachty is apparently obsessed with the stuff, and has eaten at least one slice of pizza every day since the 2nd grade.

Of course, this is far from the first time a company selling nostalgia has come to Los Angeles and been welcomed warmly with long lines. Back in March a Breaking Bad restaurant pop-up practically shut down a section of Downtown, and the NHL even created a Stan Mikita’s Donuts out of whole cloth to help promote last season’s all-star game. The Yachty’s Pizzeria pop-up runs Saturday and Sunday only in Hollywood, with hours from noon to 7 p.m.
