Many successful rappers like to spit bars about food, whether it's boasting about the expensive meals they are dining on, or using specific dishes metaphorically to get their point across. And some rappers have taken this to the next level by actually investing in or owning restaurants as a way to make some extra bread.

The list takes a look at each restaurant's track record, signature dishes, and lyrical references. Click the link below to check it out.
