KRK Rokit G4 Logo Combo

For over a quarter of a century, KRK has been the professional's choice for mixing and mastering award-winning productions around the globe. While pioneering a new recording revolution, the KRK ROKIT line has been the #1 selling monitor in the world since its inception. Completely re-engineered and redesigned, the new ROKIT G4 (Generation 4) lineup expands and exceeds beyond the legacy performance for which the ROKITs are known

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.
