"Clout Chasing" is an overused phrase being spread on social media. To me, a clout chaser is someone who seeks fame, with no objective. A clout chaser will do any and everything to be seen and heard, even if it's by being tacky or distasteful. Clout chasers usually are victims of the "15 minutes of fame" term because their fame often comes and goes. Clout chasers are not business savvy, yet they may appear to be, due to their large social media following. The term "clout chaser" and "clout chasing" has become prevalent and it is often used out of context. Clout is obtained by selling products and making money. Clout isn't about appearing powerful. It's about actually being power and having influence. If people don't respect you, then you have no clout. When you obtain money, you obtain power. When you get the power, you get the respect, as the great poet Lil Kim, once said. In this video, I break down the term "clout chasing" and I speak about a few past experience I've had, dealing with "clout chasers".
