Rap Snacks was created by marketing genius, James "Fly" Lindsay in 1994, based in Philadelphia, PA. Rap Snacks began as a variety of potato chips and popcorn that feature famous rappers. You can currently find classic bags of Rap Snacks in Philadelphia, St. Louis and Kansas City, Missouri and Chicago, Illinois.
Rap Snacks featured a wide variety of popular rappers, as well as several lesser-known or up-and-coming artists. Each had its own distinct flavor. The packaging of each variety featured a cartoon version of the rapper on the front and a brief biography of the artist on the back.
In 1995, before rappers like Ol' Dirty Bastard and Master P took place on the 35 cent bags, MC Potato's was place on the front of the foil packaging, which sold for 25 cents. Rap Snack's breakout year was in 2006, selling over 3 million bags of chips per week featuring images of rappers like Murphy Lee, Mack 10, Stat Quo and Romeo's father, Master P.
Other artist that were featured: Meek Mill, Warren G, The Big Tymers, R&B group Bell, Biv, Devoe, and the Alabama duo Dirty was featured on a bag of 'Back to the Ranch' flavored chips, Detroit hometown hero Big Herk was featured on the 'Hot Sauce' chips and Murphy Lee, of Nelly's St. Lunatics covered the "Red Hot Ripplets" bag.
