Steve Stoute, CEO of Translation Advertising, wants to let you know about hip-hop. Stoute has been kicking around hip-hip for centuries. He got his first gig working with Kid ‘N Play. Before entering the ad business, he was also a road manager, an A&R guy and a big deal music label executive. Mary J Blige, Nas, Mariah are all fans.
In the video above, Steve offers up some entertaining truisms on hip hop:
On 50cent: “If you got shot at nine times, what would you be thinking about?” Yup. Yup.
“When Janet Jackson showed her breasts at the Super Bowl, I knew the album was going to be terrible.”
Oh how right he is. Janet is just… it’s just so sad. You know, despite that Wrigley’s thing, I got love for Steve.
