ATLANTA, Jan. 8 (UPI) -- Grammy award-winning rapper Ludacris is closing Straits Atlanta, a restaurant he opened in Atlanta four years ago with partner Chris Yeo.

The decision to close down Straits came after Ludacris, whose real name is Chris Bridges, was offered a contract to open a restaurant -- Chicken N Beer -- at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport with Atlanta Restaurant Partners, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Wednesday.

The airport restaurant was inspired by the artist's 2003 album, also called Chicken N Beer. It will feature comfort food and craft beers.

"As I continue to learn and evolve as a businessman, I am extremely excited to put my restaurateur footprint into a new venture inside the busiest international airport in the United States, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport," Ludacris said in a release. "Straits was a great segue into the industry and with Chicken N Beer I can create my own concept. I look forward to expanding my creativity and driving to a much higher plane."
