4. Shut ‘Em Down

After Dapper Dan got hit with the cease and desist order from clothing brands to shut his business down losing a quarter of a million dollars in the process, Dan says he survived by using his gangster connects and taking his talents to the underground market and “hit every Black city from New York to Chicago” to continue to make his products.
