Grammy award-winning rapper Ludacris has been known to rep Atlanta, but the rapper's latest venture will bring a taste of Singapore to the Dirty South. Ludacris plans to bring the upscale restaurant chain Straits to Atlanta in April. Straits Atlanta will be the fourth eatery in the chain developed by Chef Chris Yeo.

"I love Atlanta's charm, architecture, food and, most of all, the people," Yeo said in a statement. "Chris Bridges' [Ludacris] commitment to his community and his family sealed the deal for me. This market is ideal for Straits and likewise Straits is perfect for the city."

Atlanta Straits is set to stand apart from the rest of the locations by adding some character ingredients to capture the attention of Atlanta natives that might not be used to Singapore cuisine, which is a combination of Southeast Asian food such Thai, Indonesian, Chinese, Malay and Indian cooking.

"During my travels, I've experienced some of the most diverse international culinary flavors in the world," Ludacris said in a statement. "After experiencing Yeo's modern spin on Singaporean cuisine combined with the sexy dining experience, I wanted to bring this restaurant home to Atlanta."
