Rumour Mill: Could Chuck D Be The Next President Of Def Jam?

Chuck D recently declared his candidacy for the position of Def Jam Recordings CEO / President during an online interview. Former President Jay-Z recently left the post vacant.

“Upon hearing the news of Jay-Z stepping down from Def Jam, I would throw my name into the hat of somebody who understands how the hell Universal should establish the name-brands they acquire with stockholders money,” Chuck said. How would he help the label grow? “I would run it like sports,” Chuck declares, “These artists would be busting their tails on tour and on the stage to gain a fan. They would be coached on how to do their thing right.”

Damon Dash, Jermaine Dupri, and Jimmy “Henchmen” Rosemond are also in the running for the position.
