Fresh off the announcement that his lyrics are set to be used on the side of Sprite cans, Nas recently revealed that he has partnered with the New York-based chicken and waffles restaurant Sweet Chick.
Co-owner John Seymour made the announcement at the one-year anniversary of Sweet Chick’s Manhattan restaurant earlier this week.
“As we continue to grow and develop the Sweet Chick brand, we want to align with partners and artists that understand what we represent,” Seymour said via a press statement, according to HipHopWired. “When conceptualizing Sweet Chick, we understood the history of chicken & waffles and wanted to have an amazing product while paying homage to its roots within the music community of NYC. Music has played a huge part in defining who we are and with Nas (my favorite rapper) on board, it’s a dream come true and we can truly move forward with a ‘NY state of Mind’ and introduce SWEET CHICK to a bigger audience.”
With the help of Nas, Sweet Chick plans to expand on a national scale. Billboard reports that they are currently eyeing up various locations in Philadelphia, Boston, Atlanta and Los Angeles.
Nas later took to Instagram to share the news.

“Along with some of the best fried chicken and waffles in New York City, we’re serving what we like to call American cuisine with a Southern accent: rustic but modern American comfort food and twists on classic dishes and cocktails, plus home-baked desserts that will make you feel like a kid again.”
