Wendy’s Dropped a Rap Mixtape . . . and It’s Shockingly Good?

So a while back, someone at a Wendy’s marketing meeting apparently said, “Hey, what if we make a hip-hop mixtape?”  Because they actually did it . . .

Wendy’s dropped its mixtape “We Beefin?” on Friday and, against all odds, it is NOT terrible.  Some people might say it’s actually good.  It’s clearly well-made, with professional beats and production . . . and rap talent.

The tracks all feature a female rapper . . . who’s supposed to be Wendy.

Let’s put it this way:  It sounds just like so much of the hip-hop you hear today.  Which is either a compliment to Wendy’s, or a bad sign for rap.  The reality is probably somewhere in the middle.

The mixtape has five tracks that focus on two things:  Wendy’s food, and their superiority over other fast food burger joints.  And it’s getting high praise on social media.  So . . . yeah.  This is life now.

You can hear the whole mixtape on Spotify, Google Play, and Apple Music.  The whole thing is about 10 minutes long.

Forget Chicken and Waffles: Red Lobster Is About to Sell Lobster and Waffles

The combo of chicken and waffles got super trendy a few years back.  So now it’s OLD NEWS.  But that’s okay because somehow, Red Lobster just found a way to beat it.

They just announced they’re going to start selling a LOBSTER and waffles combo.  The lobster is deep fried . . . the waffles are made with their famous Cheddar Bay Biscuit mix . . . and you put syrup on top of all of it.

I’m not sure if that sounds good or horrible, but either way, it’s on sale starting today for a limited time.  But they’re definitely not giving it away . . . it should run you around $20.
