7. Why No Dapper Dan Clothing Brand?

Dapper says the reason he decided to partner with Gucci instead of starting his own clothing brand is because he wants that “global money” from countries around the world instead of the few dollars he can make in the US only from people who are familiar with him. Noting that these brands have the power of distribution and name recognition, Dan doesn’t want to fall into a “Jim Crow economy” stating, “I don’t have the power to make moves like that.”
