Turns out, Run the Jewels aren’t the only folks Nas recently teamed up with. The man who once spat the words “fried chicken, fly vixen / give me heart disease but need you in my kitchen” is now a partner in Sweet Chick.
The chicken-and-waffle joint’s love of hip-hop is no secret: remember when Raekwon from Wu Tang Clan performed at the anniversary of its Williamsburg location? “Chicken Rules Everything Around Me?” Last night, at an anniversary party for its Lower East Side location, the southern eatery upped the ante by announcing that it was partnering with Nasty Nas. The plan is for the rapper to “help strategically expand the brand nationally,” per a press release that went on to say he’ll “work closely” with owner John Seymour to open a third New York City restaurant (the location has yet to be revealed). In addition, Sweet Chick is “exploring a few west coast options.”
So will that scrapple now come with cherry wine?
