Platinum selling recording artist “Rick Ross” has not been shy about his afinity for local hood food shops. Although his diet dubbed “Rossfit” put him in the best shape of his life he’s been expanding his entrepreneurial portfolio by jumping into the local fast food business. Most notably is his purchase of the”Wing Stop” franchise opening spots up all across the nation.

His next venture has been his endorsement form the “Checkers” chain. Ross, born William Roberts recalls his pre music days working long hours at menial jobs prefering to frequent the near by Checkers for lunch as opposed to the McDonalds next door. He always felt the quality of the food was better and the prices more affordable.

Now as a multi¬†millionaire Ross has publicly stated his joining of the “Buy Back The Block” movement, and effort to keep the opportunities as well as the dollar in our own neighborhoods. This is another step in revitalizing our communities and providing jobs and wealth to our young brothers and sisters. HONGERA! (Congrats!)
