Rapper Ludacris is extending his foray into the food industry by launching a new restaurant in the Atlanta, Georgia airport.
The Stand Up hitmaker will open the Southern food-based eatery Chicken & Beer at the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport in his hometown this spring.

The venue’s name is a nod to the star’s third studio album title, Chicken-n-Beer, which was released in 2003.

Announcing the news on his account in a series posts, he writes, “Im taking my restaurateur footprint into the busiest airport in the WORLD! Hartsfield-Jackson ATL International! Chicken & Beer coming soon!… THIS IS HISTORY!!”

This will be the rapper’s second restaurant – he opened the Asian fusion eatery Straits in Atlanta in 2008.
