Generational Wealth: Jadakiss Teaming Up With Father & Son To Create Black-Owned Coffee Brand
Rapper and entrepreneur Jadakiss is teaming up with his father and son to create a Black-owned coffee brand. Jadakiss, whose real name is Jason Phillips, is bringing together three generations to launch Kiss Café.
It’s the perfect venture for the family as Jadakiss’s dad, Bob Phillips, spent more than 40 years in the coffee industry. He recently led the coffee importing and trading firm Caturra Corp. as the CEO. Jadakiss’s son, Jaewon Phillips, joined his grandfather at the firm in 2018.
If you ask us, there’s no better family to start a brand than the Phillips family!
