Bio (Age) – Who Is Cole Bennett?
Cole Bennett is the founder of the music giant company, Lyrical Lemonade. He is also a successful Creative Video Director. To really know more about this savvy Business Executive, we will have to go way back to the very beginning.
It all began in Chicago on the 14th of May 1996 when a little baby boy was born. As an elementary school student, he bought a CD which stirred his interest in rap. That CD was Get Rich or Die Trying by 50 Cent. He went on to discover Chance and this sort of defined his love closer home to Chicago. He started attending all the music shows Chicago had to offer and by high school, he was really hooked.
Lyrical Lemonade began as a blog when Cole was in his senior year. He used it to tell the stories of seemingly small music acts in the city of Chicago. He wrote on the blog daily, writing about five articles per day. Upon graduation, the Plano Illinois bred dude moved to Chicago for his college education.
He attended DePaul University and took a major in Digital Cinema. This course missed his expectations a great deal and was like a barrier to his music-making passion. Cole made a big decision by the middle of his sophomore year to drop out of school and concentrate fully on Lyrical Lemonade, a decision he hasn’t regretted so far. He never stopped creating videos for the local artists while in school so by the time he dropped out, he already had a place in the Chicago music scene. Cole was also known for creating a host of ciphers were people basically just connected. It was his way of ensuring everyone gets heard.
Apparently, Cole’s big break came with the video of Workin It by Soulja Boy. He did the animation on the video and this sold his name wider. He is said to have learned a large majority of what he knows off YouTube tutorials including his animation skills. Another major hit was linking up with Dex, the famous Rapper, and working with him. He has made about 15 videos and even hit 14 million views with Hit Em Wit It. Other musicians he has worked with include Smokepurpp, Lil Pump, Warhol, Wiz Khalifa, Comethazine, and Han Vader.
Lyrical Lemonade, of course, grew from being just a local blog to a small business site. Elliot Montanez, Cole’s friend takes charge of running the website’s daily affairs. The company also sells merchandise including t-shirts, lighters, hoodies, and water bottles. Lyrical Lemonade also has a YouTube channel with over 5.8 million subscribers and 1.7 billion views since its joining date on March 25, 2013. On Twitter, it has over 250,000 followers and 1.1 million on Instagram. Cole Bennett himself is active on social media platforms and has an expected huge following. He has over 354,000 followers on Twitter and 1.2 million on Instagram.
His Net Worth
According to a recent Forbes list, this young music Director is worth about $1.5 million. This is not surprising bearing in mind his many creative outlets in his Lyrical Lemonade business. Ceteris paribus, this figure is bound to rise even higher as he keeps making interesting videos.
Family and Other Facts
For so many years, most of the music videos that Cole made were done in his mother’s house. This shows the support he had from her and her contribution in making him the star he is today.
In 2016 April, his sister gave him a birthday gift that pushed him up further. It was a surprise trip to Coachella, one which Cole promptly turned into a networking event. He met with artists like Lil Pump, Stitches, and SmokePurpp and went on to do business with them and a host of others. Definitely, that’s what family is for.
Cole’s birth sign is Taurus, his love life is somewhat a mystery for many but it’s known that he once dated Lana Marie, a photographer. Going by what he shares on his social media platforms, he is in a relationship with the blondie pictured above. He regards her as his “ride or die”.
