Daves Hot Chicken

Daves Hot Chicken Partners With Drake & Samuel L. Jackson

After announcing that his recent album Certified Lover Boy is number one on the billboard top 200 for the second week in a row and acquiring 849,000 units all in the same time. Today was humbling when it was announced that Drake purchased a minority stake in Dave’s Hot Chicken. For most of you who are not familiar with Dave’s chicken spot; it originally started as a simple idea of turning Nashville Hot chicken and tuning the recipe to make it better than any other chicken spot. With a little money to their name the owners create a pop-up concept in a parking lot somewhere in East Hollywood. Their first menu consisted of simple tenders, fries, sliders, and kale slaw. The company then became viral and was always filled with very long lines.  After 6 months of consistent pop-up shops and everyday being filled with long lines the team then decided to take the risk of opening their first physical store in 2018. The co-founder, Dave, a chef trained and developed his skills in Thomas Keller’s Bouchon restaurant organization came up with a simple and delicious process of creating the best chicken. His idea was to take the best quality chicken, prepare the chicken in a proprietary brine, and after deep frying; top the most tender chicken in the world with one of seven signature spice blends.

Dave’s Hot Chicken chain has locations in Los Angeles and Toronto; two of Drakes favorite city. Drake has already invested in the food industry before when he invested into plant-based chicken earlier in 2021. This would be his second food investment when investing in Dave’s Hot Chicken. 

Drake is not the only celebrity who as notice the growth of Dave’s and has taken the chance to invest into the company. Tom Werner of the Boston Red Sox and famously knowns Samuel L. Jackson is also a major investor into this fast-growing company.  Dave currently has 22 locations open but also planning on adding 25 more locations in Houston and Chicago. 

Drake posted a picture of himself digging into some Dave’s Hot Chicken earlier this year and let’s just say they passed the taste test. This hastened his minority ownership investment. A co-sign from Drake is a big deal for any business; especially with all the accomplishments Drake has helped so many people with over the years. 

Drake also made a statement to solidify his endorsement by stating “I tried the food, and it was amazing.  After meeting the founders and hearing their story, I jumped at the opportunity to invest.” 

Drake owns less than 50 percent of the company; but it is evident that his celebrity status and public acknowledgment of the company is more than enough to maintain the successful growth of Dave’s Hot Chicken

Drake x Nike’s NOCTA Collab

Drake x Nike – NOCTA 

I hope you’re not tired of hearing about Drake and his countless accomplishments lately because here he is with another milestone for 2021. Drake has collaborated with Nike and has revealed a new golf collection set to be released later this month. 

On his new hit album Certified Lover Boy’s track “In the Bible” one of his lyrics on the song was “Think I’m tiger Woods”. A week after the album was released, we now have his new clothing line – NOCTA’s of golf apparel

NOCTA, is a well-known collaborative project that has been released since 2020 with Toronto Rapper Drake and Nike. They have been churning out apparel since first launching a winter gear at the end of 2020 and presently announcing their new golf line that is currently on its way. Fans alongside Drake and Nike are excited for this new business venture. With the positive feedback drake has got from his album this year it is said the line should be a success. This design is originally designed for businessmen and women on the go and are looking for comfortable, breathable, and functionable fits that are adjustable and adaptable from one environment of business to the next. NOCTA is pivoting focused on being wearable and classed on one sport for the moment time. 

This line is a dedication and said to be “a testament to Drake’s admiration for the game,” and the collection is set to feature 10 apparel and accessory pieces created to “elevate traditional golf silhouettes.” This means that the line should be more comfortable to be worn weather you are playing the game or just manoeuvring round. When it comes to Drake, we can expect nothing but the best and for him to go big on his collection. 

Past Collaborations

In the past Drake had launch a sneaker also with Nike “Hot Step Air Terra,” which gave the fans mixed feelings. A lot of people know that Drake is not a flashy person, and he wanted his shoe line to represent him. However, some fans were expecting more from the line and wanted something louder and more stylish. If there is one thing, we know about the Rapper is that he learns from his mistakes so it would be no surprise if his new golf line is a little flashier and lustrous than his sneakers were. One thing for sure the fans are excited and ready for the release.

Drake has definitely made it clear he is an athletic person but with every line he has released demonstrates that he wants to get his foot in the door of athletic designs. From sneakers to gear he has always aim for the sports industry.   It will be interesting to see how his line with Nike turns out and even better to see how the sales go across the board.
