Memphis Rap: Rapper Rick Ross signs Wingstop development agreement for Memphis

Def Jam recording artist Rick Ross is a busy man. Last summer he was touring with fellow rap star Lil Wayne while also preparing for the release of his fifth studio album, which was being released by his own Maybach Music Group Empire. What more could he be involved in? Turns out he was also inking a new development agreement with Wingstop to open several units in the Memphis market.

The platinum-selling recording artist who received the #1 Billboard billing for each of his first three albums, actually rapped about the Wingstop brand in one of his songs.

"After tasting Wingstop's signature Lemon Pepper-flavored wings in Miami, I knew this was a franchise I wanted to add to my investments," says Ross.

Ross joins a growing list of high-profile franchisees, including NFL and NBA athletes, who are attracted to Wingstop as a business investment. Earlier this year company spokesman and Fox Sports analyst Troy Aikman became an investor in the company and now sits on the Wingstop board of directors.

"Rick Ross will be a great addition to the Wingstop family," said Jim Flynn, Wingstop CEO. "He's a talented artist and brings a huge fan base to the concept. We look forward to growing the brand with him in Memphis."
