*Having the hottest record in the country right now isn't enough for Lil Wayne. The New Orleans-born rapper just stepped into the bubbly business with his newly-launched Halo Champagne.
Weezy teamed with the company Milestone Brands and French grower Voirin-Jumeh to develop the product, which is scheduled to arrive in stores later this year. Halo made its formal premiere in the video for Wayne's No. 1 single "Lollipop."
“I’m excited about this venture with Milestone Brands,” Lil Wayne told AllHipHop.com in a statement. “Champagne is for celebrating. There are so many different business opportunities…I want to take advantage of it all. I’m ready to put my foot in a new door.”
Halo Champagne is comprised of four sub-brands, each with its own flavor. Halo Brut, contains various flavors and a citrus finish, with hints of lemon cream and roasted hazelnut; Halo Brut Vintage features a classic, creamy consistency and a stronger mix of lemon blossoms and almonds; Halo Rose, a combination of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes, offers an aroma of pomegranate, crushed raspberries, and mint; and Halo Pinnacle is a fruity Chardonnay blend, capped off by hints of lime-tree flower and roasted hazelnuts.
In the meantime, Wayne continues to promote his current single "A Milli," from his new album "Tha Carter III."
