Chanel West Coast just upped her fitness game –and, it would appear just how multi-faceted her career is. The 31-year-old rapper and “Ridiculousness” star just dropped her first Instagram workout video teasing her upcoming YouTube workout series. The shift into fitness sees the MTV face layer to her profile, with Chanel also being founder of her LOL Cartel clothing line, alongside influencing for Fashion Nova.
Hot pink spandex and a very pink gym featured in Chanel’s Thursday Instagram video. With views currently at 210,000, it looks like the rapper who has complained about not getting enough likes is receiving plenty of attention.

Chanel had initally announced her plans to take to YouTube with her workouts on Wednesday. #WestCoastWorks was used as the hashtag as Chanel confidently posed in a tight and bright pink sports bra with matching yoga pants – the look returned as the “Sharon Stoned” rapper posted ahead of the weekend. The video showed Chanel performing scissor kicks on the floor, also showing her jogging on a treadmill and delivering deep squats – here, fans definitely got a treat.
“Make Em Mad” by West Coast was playing as the workout track.
Alongside receiving a high view-count, the video also brought in a wave of comments. Unsurprisingly, many came in over the pink-themed gym.
“I can’t tell if you like pink or not?? ?,” one user wrote.
“Everything is pink expect for the wall??,” another said.
Remarks also came over the star’s super-fit physique – “I’m surprised you work out girl? I figured you just had good genetics ❤️,” one fan wrote.
Chanel is no stranger to showing off her killer body on social media. Going fully topless recently while “dodging corona” proved especially popular amid her 3.4 million followers.
Chanel made headlines in March for a series of super-sexy and brazen topless images that showed her leather-strapped and wearing pasties as she flaunted her sensational assets. The professionally-shot photos may well have been taken prior to the pandemic currently seeing Chanel social distance, but the captions gave a nod to COVID-19.
“Just out here dodging corona, like,” Chanel wrote.
The star has also delivered a boiler suit dance to iMarkkeyz’s now-viral and iTunes chart-entered remix of rapper Cardi B’s “Coronavirus, sh-t is getting real.”
Speaking to Too Fab, West Coast outlined her view-point over hip-hop’s male-dominated stance.
“It’s hard being a woman in the hip-hop game, but I’m lucky to have good people around me who have had my back. It’s actually less about race and more about being a woman,” she said.
“I think hip-hop doesn’t give women as much of a chance as it gives guys,” she added, also stating that the “competition” she feels exists between female rappers isn’t helpful overall.
