The brain child of directors Coodie & Chike and media mogul Dame Dash ( formally  a joint partner of the massive Rockafella records with Jay-Z), Creative Control is the supplier of ‘cutting edge online content label based upon the fundamental idea of maintaining creative control over all content and production from programming to advertising’ with coverage of cutting edge fashion, music, and art. They even have a creative gallery space / studio called DD172 where alot of the magic happens. Very interesting project and I can’t wait to see how it progresses.
