Last night, founder of The Entourage, Jack Delosa dropped a complete 10 track album under the rap moniker “Cavelli” titled Make Believe. The name Cavelli, comes from a 1930’s film, in which a street performer (Cavelli) wore a mask and nobody knew his real identity.
The Entourage Founder, Jack Delosa stated last week that the newly launched Entrepreneurs Development Centre was a place where startups and young entrepreneurs can go to unmask and be themselves.
