    Congrats to Paul. As long as they have someone who truly loves Hip Hop running Def Jam I’m cool with it.

    He seems like he would do a decent job but my question is why him? He hasn’t done much over the past 10 years that didn’t directly involve Em. Unless I’m just not up on what he has been doing in music the last 10 years. He is the head of Shady records, right?

  • Curbside

    He keeps his ear to the street, whether it is the alchemist, action bronson, danny brown, westside gunn & conway. think this is a good look for def jam.

    • a fucking jew …
