Jay-Z Invests In Buffalo Boss Wing Restaurant
(Huffington Post) — Apparently, Jay-Z is a wing nut. The hip-hop kingpin recently invested in the Buffalo Boss restaurant in Downtown Brooklyn. Buffalo Boss, which is run by Jay-Z’s cousin, Jamar White, experienced a 60 percent increase in sales since the rap mogul became an investor. “It’s like ‘the Oprah effect,’ but it’s ‘the Jay-Z effect,'” White says. “Business is booming because of [Jay-Z’s involvement]. We got a lot of attention real fast.” White wouldn’t disclose how much his cousin plunked down, but Jay-Z’s name being attached to the franchise could be all the ‘Boss’ needs to succeed.
