Snoop Dogg — man of the people, rapper to the stars, eater of all things delicious — going to buy up Roscoe’s Chicken N’ Waffles in order to keep the company from going belly up? Probably not. But we can dream.
In a seemingly humorous exchange posted early yesterday morning to TMZ, Snoop is asked about the bankruptcy proceedings happening with Roscoe’s Chicken N’ Waffles, which seeks to re-consolidate its debt following a massive lawsuit from last year. Snoop, seen standing next to Warren G outside Lure nightclub in Hollywood, is of course a longtime fan of the brand, but seems genuinely surprised to hear the news of the company’s recent troubles.
Of course it’s all a laugh (or is it?), though Snoop does have an affinity for the restaurants. More than likely, Roscoe’s is happy to avoid talks of a sale in times like this though, in favor of quietly working through their lawsuit woes and chapter 11 bankruptcy court proceedings. A spokesperson for the company told Eater yesterday that there were no plans to currently close any existing location, so for now — Snoop or no Snoop — it’s business as usual.
