We had the good fortune of connecting with Kyjuan (Key-Juan) DaBess and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kyjuan (Key-Juan), can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
After seeing FUBU make noise with For You By You it all clicked in , I knew I could make a living doing the 2 things I have love for and that’s creating Looks and helping people find confidence in themselves . My way of Life is UCME (You Can’t Make Excuses) so the clothing line inspires the customer and reminds the audience as well . UCME are building up to raise money for scholarships and Llcs for entrepreneurship’s

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Being able to create music that never shied away from our city , from our sound, look, accent and approach to the industry set us apart . As a group we sold over 30 mill but my biggest accomplishment was to be able to understand that someone else can do it too . No route to success is easy , I overcame certain obstacles because staying grounded was instilled in my household . I was always one of the best on my sports teams but my fam wouldn’t let me brag or look down on the person that is not as gifted as you , as a matter of fact go help him or her , befriend them .. I would tell the world that trust is only in a signature ……… get a little, give a little. Go to Ucmemarketplace.com to Ketchup in this Mustard world

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
If you hang with me we are going to my favorite Vegan restaurants Ccs and Utah Station . – Comedy shows , I would search Darius Bradford -Go bowling at Tropicana -Shoot pool at Fitz in Ucity Loop – The Studio – Dispensaries

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My Brother Murphy Lee deserves a lot of credit for keeping me focused on the goal
