[Video] Steve Stoute Talks The Music Biz, Nas, & Hip Hop Beef!


Check out part one of Javid’s highly anticipated interview with entertainment/advertising mogul Steve Stoute from the roof deck of his New York City office. In this installment Steve talks making Fortune Magazine’s “40 under 40 list this year, partnering with his friend Jay-Z to help run his Translation Advertising last year, why he Mary J. Blige and Gucci teamed up to help women with their FFAWN organization and finishes that interesting story about how it was initially Jay-Z’s idea to extend an invite to 50 Cent for his own Reebok sneaker.

Part two where Steve talks why he doesn’t necessarily want people to compare Nas & Jay-Z, how hip hop beef is like a pimple on an elephant and who he sees as the entertainment industry’s next moguls.
