Who are we?

A digital media network and promotional company dedicated to showcasing all things dope. Our portfolio consists of multiple social brands with over 300,000 followers and a monthly reach that regularly exceeds millions of impressions.

If you follow any of our accounts on social media you’ll notice we end every post with “Be You. Live R.E.A.L.”

R.E.A.L. stands for “Raising Everyone’s Awareness Level” and it’s our mission and purpose to help creatives promote their work while entertaining and inspiring our audience.

We empower creators by serving our communities with promotional platforms and events that provide free exposure and monetization opportunities. We also offer branding and social media marketing services for creatives looking for actionable guidance.
