“I launched Sean John in 1998 with the goal of building a premium brand that shattered tradition and introduced hip-hop to high-fashion on a global scale,” he said in a statement.

On relaunching the company: “Seeing how streetwear has evolved to rewrite the rules of fashion and impact culture across categories, I’m ready to reclaim ownership of the brand, build a team of visionary designers and global partners to write the next chapter of Sean John’s legacy,” he added.

Taking over Twitter as VH1iNFO was the start of my career. After gaining over 27,000 followers, I got into podcasting. Using Blogtalk Radio as a platform. I created "Have a Seat Radio" and it took off from there. Have a Seat radio had over 100K listeners across the board? Interviewed Reality Stars, Musicians, Professional backup dancers. I was joined by Jeff Lewis who is the CEO of itsonlyentertainment.com and Tori Bleu who was a local Atlanta artist and well connected to the industry. Our show went viral several times and ended up on People.com, Bossip.com, And plenty of huge websites. Hip Hop Weekly Magazine eventually came to us for an interview and featured us in one of their magazine issues.
