Rap Snacks were a variety of potato chips and popcorn that feature famous rappers. They were generally sold in convenience stores, particularly in inner-city areas. They were advertised as "The Official Snack of Hip Hop."

Rap Snacks were created by James "Fly" Lindsay in 1994. Rap Snacks featured a wide variety of popular rappers, as well as several lesser-known or up-and-coming artists. Each had its own distinct flavor. The packaging of each variety featured a cartoon version of the rapper on the front and a brief biography of the artist on the back.

In August 2007, Lil' Romeo purchased the Rap Snacks Company for an undisclosed amount of money.[1] At that time, James "Fly" Lindsay, ran the company's daily operations and aimed to expand the Rap Snacks product line with Romeo's help.
