The Creator Complex will provide hip-hop artists and producers the space and resources necessary to collaborate and create with professional audio engineers, photographers, videographers, graphic designers and creatives.

The Problem

Independent hip-hop artists have limited time and resources.  

They often spend a majority of their time writing and recording music, and far too little resources on their brand and creative assets.  It can be overwhelming and expensive. 

However, artists only get one first impression and a short window to convince someone to "like" "listen" "watch" "share" "buy".  

To be successful, it's essential to present yourself as best as possible and make each opportunity count.

Our Solution

Link artist with professional creatives to review and develop assets that independent hip-hop artists can use to help their careers.

Artists can create - and own - tangible media assets to better present themselves, connect with fans and further their career.  

A3C will program dedicated spaces for 1-on-1 and/or group sessions with well-respected companies and talented creative professionals. Creative sessions may range from a few minutes to an hour.  

What Can Artists & Producers Create?

Resident photographers will be shooting headshots and full body artist profiles

Press and writing experts will be reviewing and editing artist bios and press releases

Make new beats with the latest technology and equipment

Graphic designers will review your brand assets, provide consultation and resources. Develop a brand identity with logo sketches, color schemes and fonts

Record new music with the latest technology and equipment

Web developers can review and help optimize a current website or help start a new website from scratch

Creating new collaborations by connecting talented producers and artists. 1-on-1 speed listening sessions with producers and artists.
