Rick Ross Introduces Thighstop To Combat Chicken Wing Shortage


There’s a chicken wing shortage on the horizon, and as scary as that sounds, Rick Ross wants to save the day. 

According to CNN, Wingstop is looking to combat the incoming chicken wing shortage by pushing their customers to consume more chicken thighs, and Rick Ross is at the forefront of this new initiative. 

“We back outside, and it’s time to take it to the next level,” Ross said in an interview with Yahoo. “We know how Wingstop perfected wings. Now, just imagine that juiciest part of the meat, and we boss it up, baby.”

Thighstop, Wingstop’s new virtual brand, is the fast-food chain’s answer to the pandemic-related shortage. The digital company allows customers to order from the new menu through a website where the thighs can be picked up or delivered through DoorDash

Thighstop doesn’t seem to be a major change either as customers will still be able to select eleven different flavors with sides and dips included. They will also have the option to go boneless or bone-in. 

As of 2019, Rick Ross owns 28 different Wingstop franchises and he’s a major factor why Wingstop has become a favorite amongst fans across the country. The bosses at Wingstop hope Ross can bring the same success to their thigh initiative. 

The Biggest Boss is so determined to see Wingstop beat out the competition that he was willing to completely bury the hatchet with his rival 50 Cent if he endorsed the wing shop.

During an interview with Billboard in August 2020, Rozay said he’d be open to clear his song “B.M.F. (Blowin’ Money Fast) for 50’s upcoming Starz show BMF if the Queens legend endorsed Wingstop and Belaire champagne. 

“But him reaching out, I’ma profit off it,” Ross told Billboard. “And that’s what it’s about with me. I told him that. He could go to Wingstop and take a picture of a 10-piece Lemon Pepper (wings) and while you at it, take a picture with a Black bottle (of Belaire).”

Ross continued, “And if he do that and post that, I’ma really consider clearing the ‘BMF’ record for the show. Shoutout to Southwest T. So I would love to see the brothers shine, it’s not about Curtis Jackson at all.”
