What rapper owns a chicken restaurant?
Rapper, actor, and entrepreneur, Birdman, is the owner of a successful chicken restaurant named Chicken & Beer. Prior to opening the popular chicken spot, Birdman was the co-founder and CEO of Cash Money Records.
By 2004, the record label had had over 100 million album sales. Birdman opened the first Chicken & Beer in Atlanta one year later in 2005, naming the restaurant after the 2003 Ludacris album of the same name.
The restaurant proved to be a hit and in 2010, Birdman bought the location and rebranded it as Big T’s Chicken & Waffles. Since then, the restaurant has grown to include both dine-in and takeout locations with menus that feature options ranging from fried chicken to smoked turkey wings, as well as fish and Southern-style side plates like baked macaroni and cheese and collard greens.
With its loyal following, Birdman’s chain of chicken restaurants has become a mainstay in the Atlanta food scene.

What was the most successful product turned down on Shark Tank?
The “WineRack” was one of the most successful products to be ever turned down in Shark Tank. The product was a strapless bra that could hold an insertable wine bladder, allowing the wearer to clandestinely sip from it.
The company behind the product, simply named “The WineRack” was founded by Leslie Nyhands and based in Gig Harbor, Washington. The concept for the product came about when Nyhands got sick of having to unbutton her dress to take a sip of wine at a party.
The WineRack first appeared on Season 4 of Shark Tank in 2012, and when the concept was presented, the sharks were incredibly confused. Despite some initial the befuddlement from the panel of investors, the product actually had very good sales growths, even without the shark’s funding.
In fact, it made an impressive $1. 2 million in its first year.
While the WineRack was never accepted by the Sharks, it has gone on to become one of the most successful products ever to appear on Shark Tank. The product is still available today and is often featured on television shows and in magazines.
In the 8 years since it was first unveiled on the show, the WineRack has sold over one million units, proving itself to be a huge success even without the Shark’s backing.
