When Rick Ross loves something, there’s a good possibility he’ll buy the entire company






Rick Ross reportedly discovered his love of Wingstop after paying a visit to his local barber shop. When he tasted a fellow customer’s lemon pepper chicken (which is my favorite), the rapper knew he was officially hooked for life. Later, he would pay a visit to one of the restaurants, which would’ve prompt Ross to venture into the chicken business. Apparently that’s what happened after the rapper got a taste of the restaurant’s famous wings a few years ago. After Rick Ross discovered he was absolutely hooked for the restaurant’s chicken, he decided to invest some of his hard-earned money in the company. According to Contactmusic, he’s not a successful franchise owner.


“I told myself, Once the opportunity presents itself I’m gonna get one (Wing Stop) just for my personal (use). I jumped in head first and now we’ve got multiple franchises. Right now, I’m in the middle of a 25-additional franchise deal,” Rick explained.

Ross opened his first Wingstop restaurant in Memphis back in 2011. According to the rapper, he said the location would provide jobs for a few local folks while spreading around the food he loves to eat. In his opinion, it was a “win-win” situation.

SOHH reports that Rick Ross loved Wingstop so much that he actually used the company’s name in one of his songs. Rick told Bon Appetit that he remembers a time when he couldn’t afford to eat at this sort of restaurant.

“It was ramen noodles and the San Francisco Treat [Rice-A-Roni]. Dessert? Get you a honey bun and put a slice of cheese on it. Put it in the microwave for 45 seconds and you had the gift of a lifetime,” he explained.



If you really want  to see just how frequently Rick Ross makes reference to Wingstop and lemon pepper chicken in his music, then check out GlobalGrinds.com. There you can find a list of songs that features the rappers obsession with the chicken restaurant.

It’s no shocker that he would invest in Wingstop. Living in Miami I have had my share of their wings and I must agree the Lemon Pepper wing are on point.

What do you think about Rick Ross’ obsession with lemon pepper chicken and Wingstop? Are you surprised at the rappers choice of investment?
