Press Release (ePRNews.com) - ATLANTA - Sep 16, 2017 - Rap Snacks is looking to strike cyber gold with the release of the newest flavor endorsed by popular Rapper Lil Yachty. The new flavors “Hot Cheese Fries” and “Hot Chili Pepper and Lime Crunchy Curls” will debut in October 2017. Lil Yachty is no stranger to cross-branding, he is affiliated with top brands like Nautica, Sprite and Target. “Lil Yachty felt like a natural fit. Yachty and his brand are the exact embodiment of where Rap Snacks is trying to go. We want to be at the epicenter of where celebrity, branding, technology, and innovation intersect,” says James Lindsay, Founder of Rap Snacks.
Rap Snacks has re-established itself as the go-to brand where reinvention has taken place. Over the past year, Rap Snacks went viral when Atlanta based rap group Migos’ jingle, “Dab of Ranch”, was released. The jingle received over five million plus downloads prompting the group to release it as on official jingle on Spotify. It was then that Rap Snacks decided to step up their cross-branding and marketing efforts to place themselves at the top of the game. “The future of marketing is here, companies must take an innovative approach to get their message across and products into consumers hands quickly. As a brand, you should think along those lines,” says Lindsay. Lil Yachty is accustom to this type of marketing which has proven effective in the marketplace. His partnerships with blue chip brands are solid. In addition to his partnerships, his catchy music have garnered him a huge following on social media, which has positioned him to be a cash cow for the brands that he is affiliated with.
