My friend Tiffany Tse recently wrote a piece for The Hundreds listing 7 Los Angeles restaurants that have received lyrical props from rappers. Tiff helped write a couple pieces for UNCVR back in the day, so it’s dope that she’s elevated to a more widespread platform. Below is a little sample. Check out her full article here.
Where: Fatburger, Los Angeles
Song: “It Was a Good Day” by Ice Cube
Lyric: “No helicopter looking for a murder / 2 in the morning, got the Fatburger”
For decades, rappers have waxed poetic about Fatburger. Both Biggie and Tupac endorsed the fast-food chain (in “Going Back to Cali” and “Late Night,” respectively), and Ice Cube couldn’t resist a mention in his iconic hit. He’s right: There’s really nothing better late at night than Fatburger’s giant grease bombs, which typically include a highly seasoned patty and a fried egg.
