Drake is a veteran musician and that is exactly why younger rappers such as Kodak Black want him as a mentor. He also has a lot of interests outside of making music and that includes expanding his businesses.
According to a report by Bloomberg, it was announced that Drake purchased a minority stake in Dave’s Hot Chicken, a fried chicken chain with locations in both Los Angeles and Toronto.
Those two locales are the rapper’s favorite places to be. This is also Drake’s second venture into food investment this year, with him having invested in a plant-based chicken company earlier this year.
Dave’s Hot Chicken is backed by other celebrity investors such as Boston Red Sox chairman Tom Werner and actor Samuel L. Jackson. It also boasts an impressive 22 locations but plans to add 25 more by the end of the year, including franchises in Houston and Chicago.
Drake had also previously mentioned he loved Dave’s Hot Chicken and gave massive props to them. It will be interesting to see how the rapper’s latest business venture will fare in the long run.
