Hip-Hop Rumors: Guess Who May Be Running Def Jam Next?

Originally posted on Hip-Hop News, Rumors, Rap Music & Videos |AllHipHop:

You know that dude in the middle?

The name is Steve Rifkind. He’s one of the greats, y’all. He brought us Loud Records and all the groups with it, ranging from Mobb Deep to Akon to Asher Roth to Big Pun to Wu Tang and then some. I mean, classics…and more classics. Shoot, Killarmy!

Well, Def Jams president, Joie IE (Joie Manda) has quit and gone over to Interscope. Guess who I am hearing is on deck to replace him? You guessed it! Steve Rifkind! From what I recall, Riffy has been working on quite a few act at SRC, his new venture. But, I’m hearing he may be lulled over to Def Jam. He really is a pioneer in the game in many ways. You have to google that on your own.

Anyway…that’s the rumor.

Do you think that’s a good idea? Rifkind as president?

They keep us talking…

Get To Know Me

Shamane Rivers


I am hair Stylist with 10+ years of experience in the field, radio personality, and at one point I aspired to be an actress. I ventured off to explore what my new love for the entertainment and music industry could offer me behind the scenes. I ended up learning more about Public Relations and the role of a PR professional. I have experience with promotions, marketing, networking and consulting. My goal is to build a strong foundation, expand my knowledge and skills as a business professional, and expand my experience, talent, and respect as PR professional. As a freelance Publicist, I worked on campaigns to promote clients with more challenging budgeting needs. I am also a contributor to an up and coming online radio station were I handle marketing, public relations, advertising, creative direction, and contribute to advertising sales. I also take part in the production of shows as well as radio drops and commercial voice-overs. I want to earn the trust and respect of my clients and colleagues in the field by proving that I am capable of providing above average services. What I bring to the table is determination, motivation, and a strong will to succeed in any project that I take on. Failure is not an option and obstacles are only lessons that we learn to help conquer anything that may come in the way of achieving victory at the end of the day.

My advice is to never put limits on yourself, you can do and be who and what ever you put your mind to and work hard at doing. I love living life without limitations, and I love the fact that people who know me push me to follow my dreams. Where there is a question mark for you there is certainty for me. If I want to do it, I am going to do it, and if I fail, at least I know that I tried.
