Hoodrich Entertainment is arguably one of the most recognized entertainment brands in the business. The Atlanta-based enterprise was birthed from a dream and a desire to succeed by business partners and friends music mogul Marcus “Rip” Rippy and spin expert DJ Scream.
Hoodrich Entertainment has only one bottom line and that is helping to improve the lives of others through the gift of music.
Their stable of top-notch DJs, producers and personalities have produced award-winning mixtapes and Billboard-topping tracks for top-tier talent including the Maybach Music Group family (Rick Ross, Wale, Meek Mill), 2 Chainz, Rocko, Travis Porter, Plies, Trina, The Game, OutKast, Soulja Boy, Young Jeezy, Jim Jones, Gorilla Zoe, Gucci Mane, Plies and Shawty Lo, to name only a few.
The two equally ambitious men influence every business decision of the company. While Rip serves as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and is the behind-the-scenes visionary, Chief Operating Officer (COO) DJ Scream is the face of the brand being that he hosts the popular Hoodrich Radio show on Sirius Satellite’s Hip Hop Nation, where he also broadcasts in-studio interviews through his personal website (www.djscreamtv.com), as well as hosts Hoodrich Radio on Atlanta’s Hot 107.9 alongside fellow Hoodrich DJs, DJ Cory B and DJ Spinz.
With a strong faith in God and a firm family unit as their foundation, Hoodrich Entertainment has only one bottom line and that is helping to improve the lives of others through the gift of music.
