Fans can also celebrate with limited-edition merchandise and 60 non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

The quintessential LA burger brand, who has been known as a cultural crossroads for the African American music community since its founding in the 1950s, and Death Row Records, which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, will together donate $1.30 for every XXXL Burger purchased in-store or online to the GRAMMY Museum beginning on June 1st.* Online, fans of Fatburger and Death Row Records will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to purchase limited-edition apparel and NFT artwork, which come in the form of digital gold coins featuring the brands’ iconic logos on either side, to memorialize the rap born at Fatburger and Death Row.

Like our founder Lovie Yancey, we want to further the celebration of African American musicians and their many profound impacts on society and culture, past and present.” said Andy Wiederhorn, CEO of FAT Brands. “Similarly, we are eager to introduce non-fungible tokens to our customers. NFTs have recently gained mainstream popularity, and we look forward to being the first fast causal brand to bring to the table.”
