What gaming and hiphop have in common
Gaming is a culture
Gaming and hiphop are the defining youth cultures of our time. In fact, they have a lot in common. Clinton Sparks recently wrote a piece for The Esport Observer in which he pointed those similarities out.
Sparks has to know. After years as a mixtape DJ, Grammy-nominated music producer, and radio host, he spent nearly two years as VP of business development for FaZe Clan, one of America’s largest esports organizations. Shareholders of FaZe Clan include real hiphop royalty: Offset, Jimmy Iovine and DJ Paul. Last year Sparks launched the new gaming lifestyle brand “XSET”.
