The Clout Cloud Story
Founded in a dorm room at Virginia Commonwealth University in December of 2017, The Clout Cloud, aka TCC, is a fast-growing media company that promotes viral hip-hop content and entertainment news. Along with CEO Ilias Anwar, key members include COO Joe Ranney and Director of Social Media Phil Osae. TCC has produced event recap visuals for top-tier acts like Future, Megan Thee Stallion, and Rick Ross. They’ve also conducted interviews with buzzing rap acts like $not and Yung Lan.
“Our goal is to be a fusion of WorldStarHipHop and Rolling Loud. We take some of the funniest videos on the internet and post them on our platform to grow our online presence, while simultaneously producing rap-related events and concerts to showcase buzzing talent in the area.”– Ilias Anwar
Refresh Music Group is owned by Merid Merid. They have facilitated concerts in 22 different states, most notably for Travis Scott and Rae Sremmurd.
“Our aim for this event is to highlight the DC, Maryland and Virginia areas on a national level. There is so much talent in our area and we want to be a part of showcasing that talent. During the pandemic, there hasn’t been a lot going on. We are excited to present an event that not only demonstrates the unity in DMV’s hip hop community. It also has an amazing charitable component by way of ticket proceeds going towards Black Youth Project.”-Joe Ranney(TCC’s Co-Founder)
