Rapper Slim Thug has partnered with Chick’nCone, 1919 N. Shepherd Dr., to raise funds for the youth in low-income families within the Houston community.

Inspired by Slim Thug's favorite Kickin’ Ranch flavor and Mac & Cheese topping, the restaurant created the “Still Tippin’ Cone” and will donate $1 for every cone sold to the Boss Life Foundation, Slim Thug’s nonprofit that focuses on education programs for young men ages 8-24.

Slim Thug will be at the Heights restaurant for a fan meet-and-greet at 4 p.m. April 22 and May 6.

The “Still Tippin’ Cone” will be available those two dates and during the weekends following.
