Drake invests in MatchaBar, a company that is launching a bottled product in Whole Foods soon
It's almost a guarantee that Drake will go down as one of the best rappers in history. It's also possible he will end up being one of the genre's best business men as well and join the likes of JAY-Z, Diddy, Dr. Dre, and Master P.
From investments in Omni to launching his own whiskey brand in Virginia Black, the rap star isn't afraid to invest his money in industries besides music and it doesn't look like it's going to stop anytime soon.
Today, it was reported that his latest investment is in MatchaBar, a popular green tea cafe in New York City. Created in 2014, the company has cafes in NYC and Los Angeles but plans to expand and launch two new locations by the end of the year. In addition, its newly announced bottled product, Better Energy, will be available in Whole Foods nationwide starting in September.
Per a news release, co-founder Graham Fortgang stated: "We feel Drake not only embodies the entrepreneurial spirit of our brand, but also our company's ethos: 'good things come to those who hustle."
Drake is one of the most influential figures in the world today so don't be too surprised if you see everyone walking around with a bottle of Better Energy this fall. Sure, funding is great for a company, but the name recognition that Drake brings is priceless.
