About

ABOUT US

SelfMade Entrepreneurs is a lifestyle & branding movement/company founded on the principles of being;

SelfMade

  • Someone who comes from some origin rich or poor, and against all odds, breaks out of his inherited social position, climbs up the social ladder and creates a new identity for himself. To be SELF MADE is to be the unique You, the you were destine to be.

and having the Entrepreneurial Spirit.

Entrepreneurial spirit

  • is a mindset. It's an attitude and approach to thinking that actively seeks out change, rather than waiting to adapt to change. It's a mindset that embraces critical questioning, innovation, service and continuous improvement.

SelfMade Entrepreneurs is not only a movement but a lifestyle, not only a lifestyle but a belief, it something you know and feel. It's a family of young men and women determined to break all barriers. Bringing hope to those with nothing, those with no one, those from poverty, from broken communities and families, the forgotten. Through our talents and designs we bring the bottom to the top, through our creativity we bring our dreams to reality. We write our destinies and don't let our social bondage write us.

We believe in the true essence of hip hop culture captivating true lyricism, creativity, diversity, humbleness, and the power to uplift the spirits. It has always been and always will be about quality. "What is rapped about or designed is done by professionals, please do not attempt anything that is seen or heard by any artist" visual and audio discretion is advised. Face it, art can be explicit. We have our own experiences and would like to tell it exactly how we feel (that's why we are in this business, right). Music brings a sense of freedom in a world ruled by laws, negativity, and social boundaries.

The LOGO: Double fist, upside down pyramid

The SelfMade Entrepreneurs, LLC Logo holds a story, the story of what the movement stands for. As you can see the upside-down pyramid represents the social classes in which we we all play a part in. We are from the bottom striving to bring our dreams to reality through creativity. Inspiring people all around the world to pursue what truly makes them joyful and be their true authentic selves despite what society wants. That's what it means to be SelfMade. We believe when we make it to the top(fullfil our dreams) we will be on top and looked up to as innovators by those who are already at the top because we made nothing into something. Which is why the top of the pyramid is beneath the bottom. By us chasing our dreams we inspire anyone with a dream, but lack the resources to go after what they want in life and thats bringing the bottom to the top. This is why we say #FromTheBottomUp. The red double fist with the word Self Made represents the the power we hold when we fight together. SelfMade Entrepreneurs, LLC
