This is the audio and video from the webinar I hosted with Marcus Collins, a marketing professor at the University of Michigan, Ross School of Business. We broke down the top five hip-hop marketing campaigns of all time (and a few honorable mentions). We also talked about Marcus’ favorite ad campaigns from his days as an advertising exec at Translation, Doner, and working for Beyonce.
At the end, we broke down Travis Scott’s McDonald’s campaign and took questions from attendees.
