The assignments for both Hennessy VS and VSOP targeted the  "urban male" cognac drinker.  Who better to solve them than a couple of red-wine loving white girls?
What does it mean to never blend in?  We asked a few legends who might actually know.  
The coolest experiences in my career were the three hour-long interviews I conducted with some pretty legendary performers: Isaac Hayes, Rakim and Jon Leguizamo.  Each interview was cut down to a :60 radio spot.
