Hip-hop mogul Jay-Z is set to open up a new restaurant in the UK. According to Entertainment Wise, the rapper has partnered up with UK soccer star Ashley Cole to open the restaurant in London. While details are not available at the moment, the two are aiming to provide opportunities for jobs for youth from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Ashley told BBC about the new venture. He said, “I don’t do things to try and get publicity or anything like that. It was a great way for me to be working with people like Jay-Z and with great entrepreneurs who are going to try and make this restaurant a success. I’ve always loved Jay-Z’s music and loved what he’s done.”
