Rick Ross is taking his business smarts to another level by stepping beyond his Maybach Music Group empire. The Miami rap mogul is forging ahead with plans to open a chain of Wingstop restaurants, with his first debuting in Memphis this fall.

The ‘God Forgives, I Don’t’ creator has had his sights set on the chicken joint — even if it was only as a fan of the restaurant chain’s food — when he included it in the lyrics to his gritty track ‘MC Hammer,’ off his fourth album, ‘Teflon Don.’ “She thinking Philippe, I’m thinking Wingstop/ Feinin’ lemon pepper, I got my thing cocked,” he raps.

Ross tells that he has signed a development agreement with the Texas-based company. “After tasting Wingstop’s signature lemon pepper–flavored wings in Miami, I knew this was a franchise I wanted to add to my investments,” Rick Ross revealed in a statement.

Wingstop, which has over 480 restaurants in the U.S. and Mexico, focuses on cooked-to-order chicken. Ross, who is leading the charge with his arsenal of talented rappers Meek Mill, Wale and Pill, will open his Memphis Wingstop location at 7706 Winchester Road.
