Wing Stop is to Rick Ross, what D’USSE cognac is to Jay Z – everything.
We understand the importance of branding and product placement (especially in the music business), but is lemon pepper the only flavor wings Rick Ross enjoys at Wing Stop?
We hope not, because the Hawaiian-flavored glaze is all that…word to the ’90s.
After giving Rick Ross’ sixth studio album, Mastermind, several listens, we couldn’t help but notice Rozay’s constant mentioning of his chicken chain Wing Stop, so we decided to round up Rick Ross’ lemon pepper wings and Wing Stop references.
Make sure you visit a Wing Stop near you. Enjoy.

The McSpaghetti joins a long list of McDonald's specialty items that failed miserably. Served with a side of fried chicken, the McSpaghetti gained popularity in the Philippines, but of course, the Italians hated it.
If you live in the New England region of the U.S., you've probably seen one of these before. The McLobster is most readily available in Maine, and is served seasonally during prime lobster season.

Don't know who wants fried onion nuggets, but in the 1970s, McDonald's thought it was a good idea.

10. McDonald's Peaches & Mango Pie
In 2008, McDonald's introduced the peaches & mango pie at Hawaiian locations. Using the same shell as their classic apple pie, McDonald's appeals to their Hawaiian customers with a regional fruit.
The McArabia was introduced in Egypt and across the Middle East in 2003. The Arabic style pita sandwich is served two ways, with grilled chicken or grilled kofta (beef with spices).

For some reason, the McRib is still around. The McRib was initially introduced at Midwest locations in the mid-70s, but was eventually pulled from stores 10 years later. In 2005, McDonald's decided to bring back the rib sandwich. Now, the sandwich is served as a seasonal treat.
