Ludacris has announced plans to open a restaurant in Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the world's busiest air-travel hub. "Chicken and beer coming soon!" the rapper tweeted.

Ludacris – whose next album, Ludaversal, is reportedly set for release early this year – has been keeping busy with entrepreneurial projects beyond music. The rapper and occasional actor is a co-owner of Conjure Cognac and SOUL By Ludacris, a line of headphones. He also recently partnered with Dosomething.org and Better World Books to restock library shelves in New Orleans.

The rapper joins a growing list of performers moving into the restaurant world. Jon Bon Jovi recently opened a "pay-what-you-can" eatery in Red Bank, New Jersey, former pop stars Mark and Donnie Wahlberg have a new hamburger joint near their home in Massachusetts and Billy Corgan just announced plans to open a tea house in Chicago.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
