Drake is getting to the bag!
Drake purchased a minority stake in Dave’s Hot Chicken, a fried chicken chain with locations in mainly Los Angeles and Toronto, two of the rapper’s favorite hangouts per HotNewHipHop. This is the Toronto rapper’s second investment in food this year as he previously put some money down for a plant-based chicken company, Daring Foods Inc. per the outlet.
Dave’s Hot Chicken also has other celebrity investors such as award-winning actor Samuel L. Jackson, and Boston Red Sox chairman Tom Werner.
The fried chicken company was launched in 2017 and currently has 22 locations nationwide and plans to add 25 more by the end of 2021, including restaurants in Houston and Chicago.
“I tried the food and it was amazing,” Drake said in a statement per the outlet. “After meeting the founders and hearing their story, I jumped at the opportunity to invest.”
Drake’s involvement in the fast-food chain will likely give the chain a celebrity boost with his album Certified Lover Boy top-selling album of 2021 so far.
