It’s a story of survival when he felt like he was in a fight for his life

(Atlanta, GA)  We’re hearing their stories of racism and police brutality leaving many horrified that they never noticed before now. Today, you hear the names George Floyd and Breonna Taylor plus countless others.  Many lost their life and we will never be able to hear their stories but there’s some survivors.  Let me take you back to April 2013 where, two-time Grammy nominated hip-hop/rap artist Ryan “R. Prophet” encountered law enforcement on a Kentucky road.  He shares his story and the things he’s been dealing with since that night.

In Prophet’s new book, “Grams to Grammy”, it takes you back to that early morning safety checkpoint where things escalated leaving Ryan in the hospital, arrested, charged with third-degree assault, resisting arrest, and menacing among other the charges for the former member of Nappy Roots.  He also gets candid about what happens when these traumatic incidents take place.  Prophet can explain first-hand the affects it causes.  From expressing anger, to depression followed by post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Currently, the book is charted as #1 new best seller on Amazon as part of the #sfirmcelebrityseries.  It’s filled with issues that many in the African American community face but often times rarely discussed from mental illness to living in impoverished neighborhoods where people feel like there’s a target on their back.

Prophet shared his experience with several media outlets shortly after the incident but has rarely spoken publicly until now.

Prophet, an advocate against police brutality feels like he needs to take a stance and talk about his experience of being tased some 15 times at the hands of Kentucky State Police. His case did not go through the judicial process, but it was reported but not confirmed by involved parties that he was awarded a one million-dollar judgment.

The VIPP Report: Darnell “SuperChef” Ferguson host first book signing on one year anniversary of his new restaurant

Darnell

ENTREPRENEUR & TELEVISION PERSONALITY ADDS AUTHOR TO HIS TITLE WITH THE RELEASE OF HIS NEW BOOK “KNOWING IS HALF THE FIGHT…COOKING IS THE OTHER.”

(Louisville, KY) Have you even seen the Louisville entrepreneur and owner of one of the most notable restaurants in Louisville do anything on a small scale?  Your answer is likely “no” because he does everything in a big way or should we say “supersized”?  Darnell “Super Chef” Ferguson releases his new book on the one year anniversary of the opening of his restaurant Super Chefs. On Saturday, July 15th, Darnell and his Super Chef team will celebrate overcoming obstacles from fire to flood but their faith is what got them to see this day.

At 11:00 am Darnell will host a book launch & signing session of his book entitled “Knowing is half the fight…Cooking is the other”.  This was the brainchild of “Super Chef” when he was in culinary school.  Fast-forward several years later with a successful business and frequent appearances on several national cooking shows this was the perfect time to finish the project.

Ferguson says “When you read my book, it will give you healthy cooking tips, smart serving sizes to assist with portion control and mental food tips.  When customers come into my restaurant they always stop me and ask general questions about food, preparation and dieting so I put many of the answers in the book.  Knowing is half the fight. I hope when you read it that you will have several “I didn’t know that moments.”

We invite you to come taste great food including free appetizers and pick up an autographed copy of the book for $20.00. Breakfast and lunch is served 8:00 am to 3:00 pm Tuesday-Sunday and Dinner is from 5:00 pm to 10:00pm Thursday-Saturday.  Super Chefs located at 1702 Bardstown Road with street parking and convenient parking in the back of the restaurant for customers.

You can also purchase “Knowing is half the fight…Cooking is the other” online at http://eatsuperchefs.com/ and/or www.iamsuperchef.com.
