Rap star Kanye West decided to start a keto diet last week after the listening party for his upcoming album, "Donda," West's personal chefs told Michigan Live.

After the party, the rapper told chef Willie Wallace that he "looked good," and Wallace said it was because of his keto diet, his colleague Nathaniel Brown told the outlet.

20 minutes after the conversation, his chefs said they received a text from West instructing them to make everything on his menu keto.

Wallace, Brown, and manager Anthony Naylor worked together to craft a creative low-carb, high fat menu, MLive reported.

They said they served the rapper meals like French toast casserole with blueberries and cream cheese, lobster tail, and chicken sausage.

West's favorite food so far has been jerked meats, including salmon, jerk chicken omelets, and ribs, although he's been enthusiastic about all the food, according to Brown.

Brown added that an advantage of cooking for West is the creative freedom that comes with the resources of a rap superstar.

"There's no greater feeling than not having a food budget," he told MLive. "It's a canvas. I get to open up the fridge every day and start painting."
