Not Everything Kanye Touches Turns to Gold


Kanye West's Chicago business interests are feeling the  pinch...

Kanye opened a couple of Fat Burger franchises in The Windy City back in 2008 but now one of 'em's not doing so well and 'Ye's on the verge of closing it down.

Maybe he should invest in some Chapstick or Blistex or Carmex because his lips are fucking
D-R-Y!

Either that, or stop eating mad tail!

Fat Burger is overrated. He should've went with Nation's if he wanted to be in the burger franchise business. Oh well.

Did anyone else see him on Kim and kourtney takes New York last night?... He sounded a bit (how u doin') to me.

We already know that everything he touches doesn't turn to gold because Jay Z's penis isn't gold. He might worship it like it's gold but it isn't cause Ye doesn't have that power.

I think more people may be trying to get in shape. I know many sista's who are losing weight and a Fat Burger is not going to help them

Oh well. Maybe Flav's Fried Chicken will have some success. Kanye should try getting a Five Guys burgers and fries.

Just what the African American community needs on top of the liquor stores, chinese carry-outs, fish-fry, and fried chicken joints. And we wonder why our community is plagued with health ailments ranging from high blood pressure, diabetes to gout.

Black celebs are ruthless in their efforts to cash in on ignorant, uneducated blacks. They sell us liquor, and poisonous foods while laugh all the way to the bank meanwhile your weight and blood pressure increases. You think they'd come with new ideas on and encourage a healthy lifestyle. Nope! YT has trained them well. SMDH!

Maybe he should create "The Conye Burger" and sell it at a discount for any nigga that walks up in da cut dressed like a homosexual action figure.

2:11 PM - They don't think anything of endorsing unhealthy and unethical products and pimping that stuff out to their people (alcohol, junk food, and quick cash with high interest loans). They just want to get their name and face out there and get paid. No social conscience. No strings attached. Most Black folks I know would describe "good eating" as stuffing themselves with unhealthy food and don't care what anybody thinks of it. They don't care about eating healthy until they get a health scare, and then they'll still cheat on their diet after they're told that if they don't change their eating habits they're going to be on expensive medication and medical treatments, or possibly lose their life. Seen it plenty of times.

Oh well you lose some oh well.

Fo' Real?!?! said...

LMAO @ Bee Gee Damn you! I read your comment, ctfu, and forgot what I was going to say!

Fo' Real?!?! said...

Oh yeah, I remember now - Fuck Kayne. That is all.

Should've invested in Quench! Black-owned with healthier choices!

Neither one of kanye's locations are in the city. He put em in rich suburban hoods with too much competition. I like the food except 4 the turkey burgers. I think he would've done better if he actually put them in the city.

I am assuming that it was an unhealthy establishment. Why do that to your own? Really?

The one he's closing is the one on 95th and Western in the Beverly area on the South Side of Chicago.

Yeah, it's overpriced and the food is nothing special.

It was an ok attempt, but the novelty wore off pretty quick.

Bee Gee said...

Fo Real 3:55 LOL

Oh boy.

Only Black neighborhoods have "fast food" right?

No white people are obese...right?

Believe me when I say, I see JUST as many rotund why-tees as I do black folks. They running neck and neck.

RWS posters are good for exagerrating ish. LOL

Yo'. The NEW thing is Five Guys. Kanye need to get him one of those.

Fatburger? WTF. Is this Sanford and Son?

shady chi~town said...

Some of Yeezy FATBURGERS aren't even considered to be "in CHICAGO" ...ORLAND PARK IS NOT CHICAGO! Neither is, EVERYGREEN PARK/95th and WESTERN! He should have opened up a FATBURGER on 55th and Garfield, right-off the Dan Ryan, where that old CHECKER's use to be. He would have mad a KILLING if he kept that joint opened LATE WITH A DRIVE-THRU TOO!! He would have to hire TiGHT-ASS-SECURITY but hey, that's the price you pay to do prosperous BUSiNESS in the H00D!!

Con-Yeezy's JawBone said...

Whatever doesn't kill YEEZY only makes him STR0NGER!!

@2:11 and 3:30, BLACK F0LKS EAT...PERi0D! They buy "unhealthy" food, they cook "unhealthy" meals...I think if you EAT LIKE A PiG AND D0NT EXERCiSE you're bound to be UNHEALTHY no matter what.

@7:04

The east side of Western Ave. at 95th street IS Chicago. Evergreen Park begins on the west side of the Street. Either you are NOT from Chicago or you just DON'T KNOW WHAT THE FUCK YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT (It's the latter, believe me.)

How them BROKE ass niggas in Washington Park gonna afford a $7.00 hamburger? And no one wants to risk getting shot, beat up or robbed going to no damn 55th and Dan Ryan. You must be one of the hood rats from the area LOL!!!!

Why are we in here arguing about some damn food?? The bottom line is this man opened up the place with the intent to make money (with ALL the wrong elements: location, probably poor management, STUPID ass name) and he's lucked out. Time to find a new investment Kanye. Plain and simple.
