“Content Creation has driven many of us towards success, and for those wanting to dive deep into branding themselves, there’s no Tik Tok, Instagram Reel or Twitter thread that will grant you the blueprint you’ll receive at our debut activation,” Wright said. “We aim to bridge the inequity gap between Black influencers while bringing your feed to life, conversing with the biggest names of our generation. From fashion to business and the celebration of Hip Hop 50, Creator’s House is a safe space for us to learn unfiltered mixed with an act bad weekend.”
