Dapper also recently launched The Outlet LA and Doctor Dapper Business Growth Academy. Growing up, the native of Helena, Arkansas, didn't have a glamorous lifestyle.

In spite of the harsh environment he grew up in, he was motivated to escape the unfortunate circumstances that surrounded him and discover the true potential of life.

Dapper credits his late mother for his achievements.

''She was my number one source of support and inspiration. Experiencing all of these hardships lit a much-needed fire within me to be great,'' Dapper says in a statement on his company's website.
