A man accused of robbing a Wingstop in Memphis, Tennessee reportedly told police that he is an aspiring rapper, and hoped the robbery would get him on Rick Ross's radar. Ross is the founder of hip-hop label Maybach Music and owns 25 Wingstop franchises around the United States, including the targeted location in Memphis.
