Its not enough for Kanye West to get obese pockets off of platinum production, Billboard topping albums and expensive tennis shoes.
Now, there are reports that ‘Ye just recently copped the franchise rights for 10 Fatburger restaurants in Chicago through his holding company, KW Foods LLC.
Kanye’s manager Gee Robinson recently told TheDailyBeast.com,
“It’s safe to say that we’ll be doing more strategic partnerships in areas like fashion and design. Music is the foundation for everything Kanye does, but he doesn’t want to be defined only as a musician. He’s really a designer. He designs his sounds, his raps, all aspects of his tour. He wants to do deals where he can have his fingerprints on the product.”
The new acquisitions will only expand West’s portfolio of eating establishment as he already operates two of the restaurants in Orland Park, Illinois and the Beverly section of Chicago.
‘Ye joins the ranks of Pharrell Williams (China) and E-40 (California) as rappers who own pieces of the famous franchise.
North and South Korea exchanged artillery fire on Tuesday after many rounds were fired from the North and stuck an island near the South Korean border.
South Korean military officials said, two South Korean soldiers were killed, 15 were wounded and three civilians were also injured during the attack.
The South Korean military went to “crisis status,” and fighter planes were put on alert but did not take off. However, South Korean artillery units did returned fire after the North’s attack on South Korea’s Yeonpyeong Island at 2:34 p.m.
The official North Korean news agency said in a brief statement Tuesday night that the South had started the fight when it “recklessly fired into our sea area.”
Mr. Lee’s chief spokesman, Hong Sang-pyo, said after the meeting:
“We will not in any way tolerate this, any further provocation will get an immediate and strong response and the South Korean military will strongly retaliate if there is anything further.”
