And while it may be one of the most popular forms of tobacco usage, others are putting their spin on tobacco products to offer a diverse experience. Take Atlanta-based rapper Tip “T.I.” Harris, who has entered the chat with Superstar Brands, to launch CIGNATURE.

From Rapping To Gaming And Trucking, Lil Durk's $3M Net Worth Can Only Grow From Here

Lil Durk initially got a cult following back in 2013, when he dropped his “Signed to the Streets” mixtape series. The Chicago native would eventually earn a record deal from Def Jam Records — before realizing that he needed to not only step out on his own, but diversify his business investments. Recently, in an interview with AfroTech, OTF’s manager Ola Ali explained why it was important for its labels’ artists — including Lil Durk, himself — to diversify their investments, and specifically start investing in the gaming industry. “I believe during the pandemic people paid attention to opportunities they might have overlooked before the shutdown.

After a tumultuous year in the pandemic, the music and entertainment industries found several innovative and tech-advanced ways to stay afloat. And in the midst of so many changes, it gave OTF general manager Ola Ali the perfect opportunity to launch his latest venture, OTF Gaming. Ali — who’s well known for managing artists like Lil Durk, the late King Von and others — spurred the idea for OTF Gaming at the height of the pandemic last year to explore all the possibilities the world of gaming had to offer. In doing so, he’s been able to establish another extension of his business endeavors that’s bridging the gap between music, Black culture and the gaming industry. “I believe during the pandemic people paid attention to opportunities they might have overlooked before the shutdown.
