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.
