What about Hip Hop Jewelry?
Probably you don’t know that during my youth I used to love Rap music – it was in the old good days of Mc Hammer and Vanilla ICE. I used to wear large pants and to write MC Hammer wherever I could. Now, years later, being an marketing manager, entrepreneur and blogger, I can do things differently: I can talk a little about Hip Hop businesses, and chances are that this time someone will actually read it.
First, I have to say that back in these days I would give anything to have some cool belt buckles or some fancy fedora hats. And if there is a need, there is an entrepreneur for that need – in this case I’m looking at the Icedoutgear online shop. The shop started in 2004 – the founders being… 4 hip hop fans.
They have it all: Grillz, Pimp Cups, Watches, Chains, Pendants and Crosses, Belt Buckles, Dog Tags, Bracelets, Earrings, Rings and shutter shades.
So what this has to do with entrepreneurship and this blog? Well, in 2007 the founders were named among the ’30 under 30 America’s Coolest Entreprenuers’ by Inc.com and also named in the Inc.5000 as one of the 5000 fastest growing companies in 2007. Cool gear, cool Hip Hop entrepreneurs!
