Howlin’ Ray’s loves collaborations. In January, the hot chicken restaurant developed a sneaker with Adidas, but this month, it’s all about chicken nuggets. Rather, “nugz” with a special sauce by famed rapper (and Cardi B’s husband) Offset.

Until October 31, locals can order the Howlin’ Ween Offset Shake Box for $15 from Postmates. It’s also a promotion for Offset’s new album Set It Off. Released on October 13, the album was ranked second on number Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop albums chart. The nuggets come with his sauce called Southern Drip, inspired by a sweet, tangy sauce recipe that hails from 1920s North Carolina.
