RIP (Rise In Power), is a Black Owned and Operated (BOO) enterprise. Our business model includes designing T-shirts for men, women, and children. We are also developing a line of men's apparel. We are working within the fashion industries located in both Los Angeles and New York. We will import the finest hemp and bamboo fabrics from Ghana, Zimbabwe, and the Congo to manufacture our clothing line. Connecting this vast enterprise on an international playing field with blockchain innovation developed by DIPS Technology.


The business model is also a legacy venture. The proprietor, Ronnie Forrest, is preparing both sons to continue this venture by guiding both their academic and practical training related to the operation. His eldest son Shakur is preparing to attend FIDM and the youngest now attends Marcus Garvey Academy, both in Los Angeles.

The enterprise evolved from Ronnie’s experience in the health industry and his first apparel designed were custom made denim scrubs. He also designed and manufactured a line of custom eyeglasses, casual men’s suits, designer hats, and exotic leather shoes in partnership with Max Leather in Los Angeles. RIP is now introducing a powerful line of T-Shirts with a message for black people to rise in power.
