Joe Biden | Before They Were Famous | Young Football Stud & Terrible Tragedy Early On In His Career

Before Joe Biden would be presented with the Presidential Medal of Freedom by Barack Obama in 2017. His 2008 presidential campaign never gained momentum, but Democratic nominee Barack Obama selected him as his running mate, and Biden went on to serve two terms as the 47th vice president of the United States. Previous to all this well Joe Biden was actually a bit of a football stud and we found a ton of old clips. But his life story is also one filled with loss and grief having lost his first wife and a child in a car crash early on in his career. He also almost lost his own life and needed complicated brain surgery. It's a remarkable story one that actually has a few similarities to a man of myth, Forest Gump, I kid you not. I'll explain that in just a minute but if he does become President this will be over 20 years in the making with him having made a run for the biggest job in the land back in 1998 but that time, things didn't go so well.

Duki | Before They Were Famous | Argentinian Rap Superstar
Before Duki would break out in the world of Latin American music with hit songs like: “Don’t Give a FO” and “LeBron”. Before Duki would celebrate turning 24 by releasing a brand-new eight-song EP appropriately entitled: “24”. Before Duki would have 1.2 Million followers on Twitter, 5.1 Million followers on Instagram, and over 4 Million subscribers on YouTube at the time of this recording. Injecting a little Latin flair into trap rap while still only at the very young age of 24-years-old, Duki is an up-and-coming Latin American artist who’s changing the rules of the industry. He’s sold-out shows at Luna Park – one of Argentina’s most prominent venues -- and he managed to do it without even having released an album yet at that time! He also headlined Buenos Aires Trap, the biggest Latin trap festival, along with Bad Bunny. Combining elements of cumbia, dancehall, reggaetón, and trap, Latin Trap has strayed further from the path of its originally harsh North American roots to create a style of music that in many ways is easier on the ears – not to mention more commercial. As the figurehead of the scene he’s representing, Duki is a beacon of Argentine trap and he’s shining his talents all over Latin America, which means it’s probably only a matter of time till he makes his way Stateside in a big way.
Anthony Davis | The Rich Life | Collaborations with Red Bull, Ruffles, Car Collection and LA Mansion
In 2012, AD signed a four-year, $23 million contract with the then New Orlean Hornets when he entered into the league by 2015, he signed a five-year contract extension worth $127 million - after demanding a trade in 2019, he joined The Lakers which was obviously a good move for him because he just won his first NBA Championship. Although he’s played out the remainder of his contract with The Lakers, it’s been reported that the team is confident that he’ll move forward with a five-year contract which is reported to be worth 202 million dollars. Conflicting reports say he may opt-out of his 28.7 million player option for the 2020-2021 season and resign with the Lakers with a new deal in which he’ll have options in terms of length. Let’s talk endorsement deals - where are those 10 million dollars coming from? Before his 2017-2018 season with The Pelicans, he signed a multi-year extension with Nike which gave him a huge boost. He then signed on with Ruffles potato chips in 2019 as an ambassador AND “creative partner” in developing new products. I mean, those chips are CLASSICS but that lime and jalapeño flavor sounds FIRE. In addition to Nike and Ruffles - there’s Foot Locker, Saks, and Redbull - plus, did I mention his limited-edition sneakers, The Ruffles Ridge Tops who he collaborated with famed sneaker designer Dominic Ciambrone aka The Shoe Surgeon on.
