"I'm super excited about my new venture with PlantFuel," said rapper and entrepreneur, Lil Yachty.

"I'm super excited about my new venture with PlantFuel," said rapper and entrepreneur, Lil Yachty. "It's brands like PlantFuel that inspire and allow me to stay actively involved creatively beyond just investing."

PlantFuel marks Lil Yachty's second deal with Scoop Investments, the rapper's newly launched VC fund with his music manager and advertising exec, Adam Kluger. Scoop's recent $1M investment in the members-only, Jewish dating app 'Lox Club' back in June 2021, was Lil Yachty's first step into venture capital which he did alongside Kluger and rapper Bhad Bhabie. In addition to PlantFuel and Lox Club, Yachty hopes to close on several more investments by the end of 2021. Legendary NFL Hall of Famer, Terrell Owens, also joins the ranks of Lil Yachty and Scoop Investments as he explores new revenue generating avenues outside of professional football.

"As everyone knows, throughout my professional career I've been in phenomenal shape and extremely conscious about what I put in my body," said former NFL Star Terrell Owens. "From Day 1, I was thoroughly impressed by my exploration of PlantFuel and its products. I am excited about my partnership with PlantFuel and delighted to join their team."

PlantFuel is an all-new, premium Plant Fueled® nutritional supplement brand that aims to deliver the absolute best-possible products available, successfully bridging the gap between healthy, plant-based nutrition and peak performance – and that does so with eco-conscious and responsibly sourced packaging. The brand's category-leading Performance Protein supports strength and recovery through its Performance Protein, a tri-blend of 20g of vegan and plant-based proteins that contains all nine essential amino acids, and is fortified with performance mushrooms, algae, BCAAs and caffeine from known suppliers.

"At PlantFuel, we understand that simplicity of ingredients is a top priority for consumers looking to reach peak performance without compromising their health," said Brad Pyatt, Founder and CEO of PlantFuel. "Unlike other protein supplements on the market, we pride ourselves on providing clinically proven plant-based nutrition that doesn't compromise on performance and taste. Backed 100% by science, PlantFuel's benefits range from better workout success and faster recovery to immune defense and maximum hydration, giving everyone the opportunity to use PlantFuel products in their daily life."

PlantFuel will launch 5 new products including: All-in-One Pre-Workout, All-in-One Nutrition, All-in-One Recovery, Performance Protein, and Daily Immunity and Hydration, which will be available online at GNC.com 8/31 and official store launch September 8.
