Jelly Roll jokingly describes himself as “a regular fat piece of white trash.”

Perhaps his most infamous year, 2013, brought all kinds of craziness for Jelly Roll. He released a mixtape titled “Whiskey, Weed, & Waffle House.”

The mixtape’s original cover had a one-to-one depiction of the restaurant’s logo, as well as a parody of the menu displaying the tape’s track info on the back.

To DeFord’s surprise, the Waffle House legal team sent him a cease and desist requiring that he change the name and artwork of his tape.

While it was a big setback for his rap career, the young artist was starstruck that his music was even on the megabrand’s radar.

The name of the mixtape was changed to “Whiskey, Weed, & Women,” and the finalized cover art included a rendering of a “cease and desist” stamp.

After a lifetime of ordering the All-Star Breakfast with cheesy scrambled eggs, wheat toast, double scattered/smothered/covered/chunked hashbrowns, sausage, and a chocolate chip waffle, DeFord finally vowed to never dine at Waffle House again after the debacle forced him to trash a music video he paid to shoot at one of the chain’s locations in Nashville.

The breakfast food boycott didn’t last – Jelly Roll couldn’t stay away from his favorite meal.

He continues to dine at Waffle House on a regular basis.

“I’ve been smothering, covering, and chunking shit for 28 years,” DeFord revealed in an interview. ”I had to look at my birth certificate the other day to make sure I wasn’t born in a Waffle House.”
