    How do you win a game when they kill the best players. You don't let them know your playing until you've won.

    Charlemagne is dumb and do not get bcus he doesn't listen.. Global influence doesn't equal global success unless you can distribute to does in demand..The power that be are hell! Rapper make the music but that doesn't profit! Offwhite basically design,he doesn't own nike or shoes.. Basically partnership input that they approve.

    DJ Envy don't understand Dapper Dan make custom made clothing for a particular economic based of people who can afford his clothing.

    This conversation here failed to mention that integration has killed the black economic system in Black america and this is why Dapper Dan is correct on this subject, and his age is a factor in his decision making. We as a people in Black America must understand distribution and marketing from a black perspective. In the case of Tyler Perry business model is an old black business model that work for black people in the early 1900's from the Midwest, East and Southern "Chitlin Circa," that moved black culture, and supported black businesses at that time era. Tyler Perry Rehabilitated that movement through his plays and television series created without the help of Hollywood and Broadway. We must create a business model and structure around black business.

    We have to learn from passed history and he's given Charlemagne the game, but Charlemagne hasn't learned from past history unless we tell our story and history, other people are making our story and history their culture and history by claiming ownership. Africans gave the world it's civilizations across the globe, built pyramids and other culture are claiming that history.

    Identify with Dapper Dan, because my mentor introduced me to thinking globally twenty years ago, and it took me a year to understand his wisdom and this brother spoke 5 different languages. Motown music owner understood the globally move in the 70's when Paul Williams and David Ruffin of the temptations didn't want to change.

    Black people need to understand there are 7 continent's with thousands of business markets, so American market and especially the black community don't sustain their culture markets. I take a look at the African music history in America from Spiritual music to hip hop , because of integration killed off the black business markets and structure.

    Charlemagne have a lack of understanding on serious issues and instead of Charlemagne research and understand how things work. The difference between Dapper Dan who is a clothing manufacturer and designer. Puffy and J.Z. are branding labels and not manufacturer. Cross colours, Karl Kani , other urban designers and brands were being black balled from competition in mainstream stores. Dapper Dan had a great understanding on how things work.

    MUSICLOOK 3 months ago

    This was a great interview got a few gems, however, I don't agree you will never be in control of your product until you have you on brand Gucci will never let him. It is great that he wants to one day have his own brand but there is no time to wait he's already 76! Distribution and finance is his problem but he's forgetting the digital age we are in, use that money to start out making a limited stock which well is sold online distribute yourself its gonna be nowhere near as big as Gucci but to get to that level it will take time
