Biggie's Estate Selling Potato Chips To Make "Chips" For Late Rapper's Foundation
(AllHipHop News) Rap star Notorious B.I.G. is being honored with his own line of potato chips, thanks to a partnership with the Rap Snacks brand of potato chips.
B.I.G.'s mom Voletta Wallace linked up with Rap Snacks' founder James Lindsey to create the Biggie Icon brand of chips to benefit the late rap star's Christopher Wallace Foundation
The Big Poppa Cookout BBQ Sauce potato chip and Notorious Honey Jalapeno are the first products in the new Rap Snacks Icon line of chips, which will pay homage to a variety of rap legends.
“I’m happy to announce our partnership with Rap Snacks to create delicious flavored potato chips packaged with my son’s, Notorious BIG moniker and image," Voletta Wallace explained. "Our primary focus in doing this deal was to assure a portion of proceeds of sales are paid to The Christopher Wallace Memorial Foundation to further our efforts of providing computers, books, and other educational tools to inner-city youth as well as assistance to the elderly in the urban communities.”
A portion of the sales will also benefit Rap Snacks' Boss Up Foundation, which will work with B.I.G.'s foundation to provide support to different organizations with the proceeds from the chips.
Rap Snacks, which James Lindsey owns with rapper/entrepreneur Master P., is currently available in over 4,200 Walmarts around the United States.
The brand sells the Cardi B Cheddar Bar-B-Que chips, Cardi B Jerk BBQ Wavy chips, Migos Sour Cream and Ranch chips, and Migos Bar-B-Quin’ with my Honey with Ranch Wavy chips.
