There is no shortage of blogs and publications dedicated to entertainment. Nor is there a shortage of articles and programs dedicated to entrepreneurs or the business world. And while these publications and outlets do occasionally showcase the power players behind the scenes in the urban entertainment world, very few, if any before us, have made it their sole mission to champion “The Biz Class.”

Our goal is to celebrate the brightest business minds in urban entertainment, sports, arts and fashion; to study their most ingenious moves; and to pass on what we learn to the next generation of game changers and thought leaders.

We do this by documenting the music, film, fashion and sports worlds from the standpoint of the young urban professionals by presenting news in those arenas from a business perspective. Those news items are supported with original, candid and interactive multimedia features that allow our readers unprecedented access and insight into the business and careers of the young power players who move it forward.
