50th Anniversary of Hip-Hop Story x PR Guru Savannah Britt @sav_britt

Savannah Britt, public relations guru and thought leader, has helped shape the identity of some of the biggest talent and brands across the fashion and music spaces. While attending Rutgers University, she jump started her agency The Brittprint, from her college dorm room. Using her know-how for social media she garnered a clientele roster from utilizing social media, attending events in the city, and making a name for herself.

One of her most memorable early moments was sending a PR pitch out for Madeintyo’s “I Want” music video before running to class, and returning from the day to see the media coverage it garnered. Even as a college student juggling her own budding business, her passion for the culture saw no limits.

To date, Britt still runs The Brittprint. With a focus in public relations, marketing, and creative strategy, the agency has cultivated relevant work with clients such as Burna Boy, DJ Khaled, Gucci Mane, Ryan Leslie, 2 Chainz, Lil Yachty, Smoke DZA, Alessia Cara, Victoria Kimani, 24hrs, Desean Jackson, Madeintyo, Pappy Kojo, Pelle Pelle and more.

In October 2019, Savannah and her team temporarily relocated to Lagos, Nigeria to establish the agency’s footprint in the Motherland. Prior to the move, they had been working from a satellite position with various African stars–providing a bridge between Nollywood and the hip-hop world. Savannah decided to make the move in hopes of providing resources and expertise in an entertainment market that sits as the second biggest entertainment hub in the world. Since journeying to the Sub Saharan, The Brittprint has done activations with Beats By Dre, Afrochella, True Religion, and more.

Savannah is currently based in New York City. When she’s not making PR campaigns hit, she’s exploring her talents as an A&R, speaking on symposiums like Harvard University or ASALH’s (The Founders of Black History Month) Annual Meeting & Conference, and running her non-profit organization Diaspora Dialed In that focuses on informing and organizing around Black African Diaspora centered environmental, social, advocacy and human rights work.
