Kanye West to Open a Chain of Fatburgers in Chicago

Apparently, being the self-proclaimed “No. 1 human in music” isn’t enough for Kanye West. According to recent reports, the rapper/producer plans on opening a chain of Fatburger restaurants via his West Foods LLC in his hometown of Chicago. West will reportedly open 10 Fatburgers, with the first restaurant launching in Orland Park, which is 25 miles southwest of Chicago’s downtown area.

West is also rumored to be one of the primary producers working on Jay-Z‘s upcoming ‘Blueprint 3′ album. Hova previewed the West-produced track ‘Jockin’ Jay-Z (Dope Boy Fresh)’ last week during Yeezy’s concert at Madison Square Garden in New York.
