Chicago Hip Hop Connects is a company developed for the Hip Hop community of Chicago.

Our mission is to be the #1 resource for connecting the Hip Hop community of Chicago by providing opportunities to get industry professionals connected.

Our vision is that by connecting the hip hop community, we will create more opportunities to work, which in return will bring exposure to Chicago so that it will become a destination for industry professionals to launch their career.


We developed a campaign called “CONNECT THE DOTS,” where we have identified the “dots” as a symbolic representation of “clicks” that stay within their circle, therefore creating segregation instead of unity.  Hate instead of love. When we talk about these “clicks” we are talking about the south sticking with the south, we are talking about the suburbs sticking with the suburbs, we are talking about dancers never given the opportunity to be in front of an artist, graphic designers never meeting a video director, and so on.

“I just used my connects.” ~Monster

By adding the word “CONNECT” we bring several elements to the table that we hope will help create unity, by bringing the city together. Not only will we provide online and off-line opportunities to connect, we will also provide the tools and education needed to make use of those connects.

Chicago has some of the greatest talent not only the midwest, but in the nation. When we talk about talent, we are talking about the talent within every aspect of the music industry as a whole.

CHHC Artist Showcase gives Chicago artists a chance to open/perform for a bigger name artist. Before each showcase their will be a TRACK-OFF to where each artist can submit their EPK through Sonic Bids to be entered into the competition. CHHC will then choose the top 20 artists and will open it up to the public to vote. The artists with the most votes will win the opening spots. In dedication to the TRACK-OFF, CHHC will put out a mixtape of the top 20 artists and it will be distributed through all of our websites, affiliates, and at our networking conference.


CHHC  Networking Conference, gives industry professionals a chance to network amongst each other and some of the top names within the industry.
