“Don’t nobody have more chips than me. Just did a deal with the new brand ambassador, Snoop Dogg. We are family, and there’s enough for all of us to eat. We agreed on a 50/50 partnership. And the new Snoop Dogg Icon chips are coming soon in three flavors,” Master P said in an Instagram post announcing the deal.
Master P continued: “I’m committed to continuing educating and giving our people the blueprint on building economic empowerment. Trust the process. We’re taking over the grocery stores they can have the streets. Product outweighs talent, we made an empire with music, and now we are making generational wealth with products.”

Rap Snacks, founded by CEO James Lindsay, was established by intersecting food and music. The company has collaborated with various hip-hop artists, including Meek Mill and Bel Biv Devoe, to launch the next great flavor options.
