Slim Thug has lost almost 50 pounds of excess weight over the past years and in an exclusive interview with DJ Smallz Eyes, the Houston rapper says he owes it all to a work out regimen that includes being a gym rat five days a week.

Slim Thugga also credits HUSLfit‘s Milton Harris and his daily three-mile runs at Houston’s Memorial Park as the reason for his weight loss after being diagnosed with high blood pressure.

Although he currently is on a healthy diet spree to get right for the summer, Slim Thug does admit that his eating habits can sometimes get out of hand.

“If I’m going to call myself a hustle and live my best life then it’s important that I take care of myself,” the Hogg Life rapper says. “So I’m going to work out at least. I’ma hustle on myself. Run, work out, then after that do a song or two and then I start my day and do whatever I want to do.”

Paul Wall and Mike Jones are among other notable Houston rappers who have lost weight after deciding to embrace a healthier lifestyle.

Brooklyn, New York rapper Joell Ortiz is another rapper who decided to change his lifestyle and get healthy by changing his eating and work out habits which resulted in him also losing 50 pounds. After the weightloss, Ortiz shared his fitness regimen with HipHopDX in an exclusive interview.
