FUBU Founder Daymond John recounts how MAGIC helped him launch his fashion empire. Here is his success story in his own words:

Twenty years ago, Forrest Gump was #1 at the box office, Boyz II Men were blowing up the music charts, and the OJ Simpson case was catching the nation by storm. And it was twenty years ago today that I took affordable next steps for my emerging fashion line FUBU. What happened next was magic.
