Snoop Dogg is one of the most commercially viable rappers ever. He’s put his name on hundreds of products and business ventures, and now we may have another one.
It was recently reported that world famous Roscoe’s Chicken & Waffles is in financial straits and filed for bankruptcy. Confronted with this info, Snoop made a potentially rash decision.
“Guess I’ll have to buy it and make it Snoop Dogg’s Chicken & Waffles,” he told TMZ.
The restaurant, which has numerous locations around the Los Angeles area, was sued last year by former employee Daniel Beasley, who claimed he was racially discriminated against while working there. He was awarded $3 million subsequently threatening the storried business’ financial viability.
