Harlem Stoop Talk - Branson

Darlene Lewis, lyricist/tv producer interviews Harlem's legendary entrepreneur Branson Belchie. Viewers will see and learn about the wisdom Branson has shared with famous entertainers and regular folk.  Branson is the man who introduced Cristal, Dom Perignon and a number of other pricey brands to his friends Christopher “Notorious B.I.G.” Wallace and Sean “Diddy” Combs in the late 1980s. Within a few years, that suggestion sprouted into hip-hop’s full-fledged obsession with champagne. Branson is widely credited with starting the craze, and his name has been mentioned in more than 60 songs over the past two decades.
