Hip-Hop Legend Brings ‘Fresh’ Opportunity To Harlem
(NY1) — After more than 25 years in hip-hop, rapper Doug E. Fresh is still going strong. The popular recording artist, who calls Harlem home, is spreading his wings in his old stomping ground. With concerns about the how the economy is hurting his hometown, the celebrity has just opened a restaurant on 132nd Street and Adam Clayton Powell Boulevard called “Doug E’s.” “Really even in this whole Obama initiative, and everything that’s going on with the economy, the only way to jump start it is we have to give each other opportunity. That’s the only way to make it work,” says Fresh.
