Tyga is being creative during this pandemic.
The “Taste” rapper is surprising his fans with his new business and that’s right you guessed it, chicken nuggets.
Beginning this week, Tyga is launching Tyga Bites – a virtual dining concept that specializes in bite-sized baked chicken nuggets.
For right now the business is delivery only and is now available through Grubhub and in 30 major markets including New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Washington D.C., Chicago, and more. Additonal dates are expected to open up any time now.
The “Dip” artist partnered up with celebrity chef Eric Greenspan to create the “antibiotic-free, oven-baked, boneless chicken bites,” according to a press release.
Tyga Bites’ online menu offers chicken bites with three different spices all hands picked by the rapper himself – including black garlic, lemon black pepper and peri-peri, a mix of tangy, sweet and spicy, the press release notes.
“I wanted to make sure the whole menu, flavors, and even the packaging was on point,” Tyga said in a release. “The bites are baked just right; choose a dip then take sip! I even threw in some chocolate chip cookies for dessert.”
It will also have 12 different dipping sauces, regular and sweet potato Tyga tots, bite-sized chocolate chip cookies, and several beverage options.
Grunhub is currently offering free delivery on orders of $15 or more throughout the entire month of August to new and existing customers of Tyga Bites.
Earl, who is currently serves as the founder of Virtual Dining Concepts, said that Tyga’s “instincts are spot-on” in creating Tyga Bites.
“Tyga has been an inspiration to collaborate with on this brand,” he added. “Today begins the independent restaurant revolution.”
