Meet the guy behind some of hip-hop’s biggest up-and-coming rappers like Smokepurpp, Famous Dex, Juice WRLD, and Lil Pump. A3C Conference will host a conversation with Lyrical Lemonade's founder, Cole Bennett, and Shane Gill, director of hip-hop's largest digital video network, Opposition.
In just a few years, Cole Bennett has become the most sought after music video director, defining a whole new generation of hip hop artists with his eclectic vision and signature aesthetics. Hailing from suburban Illinois, the young director entered Chicago’s hip hop scene in his high school years by filming live shows, and subsequently moving into video direction under his brand and website Lyrical Lemonade.
