They Don’t See The Grind They See The Shine — The GeoGee Experience Magazine — Medium

The title of this post is a quote I lifted from a conversation Damon “Dame” Dash was having on the TV show Music Moguls.

Now considering Dash’s failures one might ascertain Dash is not the one to be quoting in a motivational context.

In his heyday, Dash was worth a reported $50 million, only to descend so deeply into debt (thanks to back taxes, back rent and other outstanding bills) that it ate away at his multi-million fortune.

Given all of that, I’d argue that Dash could offer up some noteworthy advice on what to and not to do to those with their eyes on the prize of success and prosperity. There’s always lessons to be learned from losing just as there are lessons to be learned from winning.

Colt 45 Is Teaming Up With Billy Dee Williams To Try And Sell Some Old School Beer

Can an old school spokesperson sell an old school product in a new age environment?

2015 American Music Awards - Show

After a 30-year hiatus, Billy Dee Williams and Colt 45 are teaming up again in an effort to get more folks to guzzle down Malt Liquor.

Williams and Colt 45 first teamed up in 1985 for a long-running ad “marriage” aimed at selling more Malt Liquor to African Americans. One of William’s most successful lines, “The Power of Colt 45, it works every time,” put Malt Liquor and Colt 45 on map in a huge way.
