If you’ve been around these parts for some time, y’all know I’m a huge fan of video interviews where inside the music industry business details are discussed. AlLindstrom.com is great with publishing this type of content, and this time around they sit down with the Senior Vice President of Island/Def Jam, Shawn “Pecas” Costner.
In part one of their interview, Shawn Costner talks about Def Jam priorities. He discusses the rebuilding of the Def Jam brand — particularly in regards to hip hop culture — dealing with Young Jeezy and Rick Ross’ ongoing issues, Young Jeezy being one of the most prolific writers in hip hop, utilizing the "viral wave" for G.O.O.D. Music’s Pusha T, plus more. Video by Left Of Frame Pictures.
