Ludacris Plans to Open Chicken & Beer Restaurant in Atlanta Airport

Grammy Award winning artist Ludacris is taking his restaurant talents into one of the busiest airports in the country.

The ATLien took to Twitter last night (January 3) to reveal plans of opening a new eatery dubbed “Chicken & Beer” in Atlanta.

“Im taking my restaurateur footprint into the busiest airport in the WORLD! Hartsfield-Jackson ATL International!,” he tweeted to his 3.7 million followers. “Chicken & Beer coming soon!”

Inspired by the title of his 2003 album, “Chicken & Beer” will be Luda’s second restaurant in Atlanta. The rapper plans to close his first eatery, ‘Straits” located in Midtown Atlanta in order to focus on his latest venture.

“As I continue to learn and evolve as a businessman, I am extremely excited to put my restaurateur footprint into a new venture inside the busiest international airport in the United States, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport,” Ludacris announced in a release statement. “Straits was a great segue into the industry and with Chicken N Beer I can create my own concept. I look forward to expanding my creativity and driving to a much higher plane.”—Ralph Bristout

    I would like to say, that “Chicken and Beer” is a unique name for a Restaurant in Atlanta. Being from Georgia, I can say that if Atlanta needs more of anything, it is more restaurants that personify racist stereotypes. Maybe the Menu will be in Ebonics!

      Luda is one of most talented rappers out there.

      He’s an intelligent guy but he struggles when it comes to “Keeping it real”.

      Luda feels the need to dumb himself down to relate to fans but someone needs to tell him its unnecessary.

      Obama said he was his fav rapper…Then he made a song calling Hilary a bitch…As if that was going to help Obama’s campaign…Straight denounce from the president.

      People have constantly been slaying him on song topics like Hoes in different area codes, and “move bitch”. He hasn’t smartened up yet.

      Now this Chicken & Beer crap like he’s a damn cartoon.

      Please someone tell Luda there’s no need to do dumb nigger shit he will still have street cred if he acts intelligently.

        Good point Jugular. I agree. Its similar to when Black Face Theatrics was popular, how all the black actors would still portray these stereotypes all though they themselves were wealthy!

        I say, if you are so hood, please move back in the hood, and help the neighborhood change.
