(AllHipHop News) Super producer Jahlil Beats is taking the money and business experience he has earned in the music business, and opening a new business venture in his hometown of Chester, Pennsylvania.
Jahil, who has crafted hits for artists like Drake, DJ Khaled, 50 Cent and others, is the latest owner of a Villa sneaker store, which opened over the weekend.
Villa is a Hip-Hop oriented lifestyle retailer with 120 locations in 10 states.
The company is known for selling the latest sneakers and fashion, through partnerships with rappers like Wale and Fabolous, hosting in-stores with top celebrities, and even cyphers.
But what attracted Jahil the most, was Villa’s dedication to the communities in which the company operates.
“We're at a critical point in the city where change needs to happen and it is! We will continue to grow and prevail through it all,” Jahil Beats said.
Over the weekend, Jahil opened his $2 million Chester location, flanked by State Representatives and local politicians, while rappers Jadakiss, Beanie Sigel, Casanova, A-Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and “Basketball Wives L.A.” cast member Saniyyah Samaa all made appearances.
“This is a big day in Chester,” State Rep. Brian Kirkland said according to the Delaware County Times. “This may be a building block to revitalize our downtown district and I’m so excited about everything that’s going to happen in these upcoming years to come.”
