Donte' and Ron are back again. This week they caught up with Jerrill Sankey, the owner of Creative King. Jerrill crafts his hats by hand, from scratch. A unique aspect in an industry where everything is manufactured and mass produced, Creative King exists in a space of its own. In the span of a few years, the head of Creative King went from a Public School Janitor to a recognizable, internationally sold brand. 

Before they get into the interview, Donte' and Ron speak about the art of freelancing(1:05). Then Ron tells the story of seeing Creative King for the first time(7:15) and allows Jerill to tell us how long his journey has been, moving to Maryland and being inspired by 90's hip-hop fashion, like Roc-a-Wear and FUBU (11:00).

The conversation leads into dealing with criticism and how it helps personal and business growth(16:22). He also talks about the transition from janitorial work to working at Sewlab USA(25:15). To rap it up, the three talk about the future of Creative King; from working on being carried in Dover Street Market and Opening Ceremony, expanding the brand to bags and building the team(42:33)
