Rap Capitalism

ScoreMore is the successful byproduct of booking agents Sascha Stone Guttfreund and Claire Bogle trying to deliver the acts they wanted to see.

After the show is over, after the venue has cleared out and after everyone has determined that the night was largely fantastic, Sascha and Bogle and the rest of ScoreMore take stock.

The only thing more clear than how tired the team looks is that the last eight hours are concrete proof they're developing something great. There's really only one question left to ask:

At 24 years and 21 years old, why did you two turn down the opportunity to be self-made ­millionaires?

"Because I love this job," Guttfreund explains. "It's my career. We've built up something special with ScoreMore. That offer was just more motivation to go-go-go."

Then a pause. And then the kicker: "And if they're willing to pay that now, there'll be a bigger check in the future."
