Surrounded by industry friends and press, community leader Aron Gadson celebrated the launch of his new book You Already Won (Jan. 29). The private event took place at The Cecil in Harlem (Gadson’s hometown). Yandy Smith, A$AP Ferg, and Styles P were among the guest list.
“I want my audience to take away experience and how to solve problems with having limited resources. As well as the odds being against you. I want people to know that you don’t need all the perfect circumstances to be a winner”, said Gadson in regards to his book. According to special guest Yandy Smith, You Already Won depicts a person fighting for their place in society. “…That is a fight that we all have”, Smith expressed on the red carpet.
The packed venue was well decorated — mainly in black and gold. Treats and take-aways included book-themed cupcakes, Core bottled water, and mini gift bags. There was also on-site merch and books available for purchase. "I’m thankful…if I reach one person I [reached] my goal, anything beyond that is a plus for me”, Gadson told Ally The Journalist exclusively. “I’m already beyond grateful for the turn out.”
