Hip-hop is not only responsible for driving massive shifts in culture and influencing trends world-wide; it’s also been a seemingly inexhaustible source of innovation and entrepreneurship. In the 1990s, artists stepped off the stage and into the boardroom, launching fashion lines, record labels, and production companies. Must-have brands like FUBU, Enyce, and Baby Phat, and entertainment companies such as Bad Boy, Roc-A-Fella, Flavor Unit, and No Limit became the gold standard for Black ownership, wealth, and financial independence.
