With his days running The Source magazine long over and his gig at Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta a wrap, Benzino had to diversify his lines of income. The latest venture for the Boston rapper is a seafood restaurant in Marietta, Georgia called Benzino’s Crab Trap. 

Seriously, we couldn’t make this up if we tried.

Reports TMZ:

Ex ‘Love And Hip Hop’ star Benzino has crabs, and he wants you snatch ’em up … at his new Georgia restaurant, “Benzino’s Crab Trap.”

The reality TV star and recording artist also considers himself a crustacean connoisseur, so he’s busting out his fave recipes at his new eatery. We’re told he’s especially proud of his seasoned crab. Dude is from Boston … so, gotta figure he picked up a thing or two.

The grand opening is July 19 in Marietta, and we hear a pound of snow crab legs is going for $16.99.

Benzino’s Crab Trap will be located at 2856 Delk Road, Marietta, GA 30067

Some of you may recall the time Benzino boasted of eating stone crabs in Miami while The Source wasn’t able to pay its employees that same week.

Never forget. Also, yes, that’s Zino in a crab outfit below.
