Senior Vice-President of A&R at Def Jam, Sha Money XL, recently came forward to talk about his top five favorite music industry excutives of all time, ranging from Interscope records CEO to Lyor Cohen.
"Jimmy Iovine is a genius. OK? He was the one who was actually a real music guy who actually gets it and knew the structure of Interscope and could really pay attention to it…L.A. Reid. You know, this guy is in multiple genres of music and [has] sold millions. I mean, one album, fifteen million, next album, ten million…I really think number three should be me…I mean, honestly, it takes a special dude that's able to sit between Dr. Dre, 50 Cent and Eminem, all those egos, take leadership from Chris Lighty and Jimmy Iovine."
