Rapper Rick Ross has invested in fast food chain Wing Stop after sampling the company's lemon pepper chicken during a trip to his barber.

The Sanctified hitmaker was getting a buzz cut when a fellow customer walked in with his lunch - and Ross was instantly hooked on the look and the smell of the snack.

He followed his nose to the nearest Wing Stop and became an instant fan.

Ross says, "I told myself, 'Once the opportunity presents itself I'm gonna get one (Wing Stop) just for my personal (use)."

Years later, he's now a franchise holder, explaining, "I jumped in head first and now we've got multiple franchises. Right now, I'm in the middle of a 25-additional franchise deal."
