Darrell Alston: Overcoming Obstacles to Build Bungee Brand
Play • 52 min

A Philadelphia native, Darrell first found early career success as a rapper, joining well-known tours and building his career in the music industry. Over time, he quickly realized his income wasn’t supporting his rap lifestyle – a mindset that led him to begin dealing drugs.

Everything suddenly came to an end when he was arrested and sentenced to prison.

While incarcerated, Darrell learned that he had an eye for design and began sketching unique sneaker designs. When he was released from prison, he opened his own barbershop while continuing his passion for sketching shoes. Saving funds from his barbershop, Darrell put his first sneakers into production and the rest is history.

In this episode, Kenny, Seth, and Darrell discuss topics ranging from Darrell's incarceration, his unique relationship with Bernard Hopkins, the building of Bungee Brand, and much more.
