Walker Seminar: Hip Hop Entrepreneurship

For today’s hip-hop artists and entrepreneurs, it’s 90% business know-how and 10% talent. Key elements of the hip-hop culture influenced music, dance, fashion, language, as well as self-worth and personal identity. Consider how the hip-hop culture was started by poor, young Black and Brown people of color in New York City from the boroughs of Brooklyn, South Bronx, and Queens. It grew and became a cultural and economic phenomenon worldwide. As touted by author Steve Stoute, “hip-hop created a culture that rewrote the rules of the new economy.” 


In a world divided by race, ethnicity, gender, and social standing, the hip-hop culture provided a creative space without divisions—a place that allows originality to flourish and entrepreneurism to provide opportunities for people of lesser chance. Hip-hop as a culture is about changing mindsets and expanding possibilities from the streets of hard knock to the board room of multi-billion-dollar empires.
