Here’s an insightful interview with the Senior VP of Island/Def Jam Shawn “Pecas” Costner. Take notes guys. He talks about the rebuilding of the Def Jam brand, dealing with the Young Jeezy/Rick Ross issues, G.O.O.D. Music & Pusha T, and being drunk when he announced Asher Roth’s deal on Twitter.
I LUV hearing stories of the come up. In part 2 of this interview, Pecas talks getting his start in the industry… From his early days at G-Street, to the move to Arista, his relationship with LA Reid, and his gig at Def Jam. As one of the key “relationship guys” in the music industry, Pecas gives some advice in networking.
