Camille Augustin / May 23, 2014

Music industry veteran Steve Rifkind stopped by the Breakfast Club (May 23), to discuss his new venture All Def Digital, managing artists like Mobb Deep and Wu-Tang Clan on the pivotal Loud Records, and his thoughts on the state of Hip Hop in New York.

“I blame the executives and it’s really not even their fault…There are no new labels that really are coming out of New York. There’s no Roc-A-Fella, there’s no Bad Boy, there’s no Def Jam, there’s no Loud,” Rifkind said.
