A few days ago, we had the pleasure of chopping it up with Def Jam’s founding publicist, Bill Adler. Along with Cey Adams and Dan Charnas the triumvirate released their new tome, Def Jam Recordings: The First 25 Years Of The Last Great Record Label.
The book beautifully chronicles Def Jam’s rise with featured interviews from founders Rick Rubin, Russell Simmons and label executives Lyor Cohen, Juile Greenwald, Kevin Liles, Chris Lighty, and others.
From his Midtown pad, Bill discusses the process behind the project and the future of the storied label. Def Jam Recordings: The First 25 Years Of The Last Great Record Label is available now!
