Island Def Jam chairman Antonio “L.A.” Reid recently revealed his thoughts on 50 Cent’s success within the music industry labeling him one of the “all-time greats.”
Speaking with renowned television host Charlie Rose, Reid dished out Fif’s accomplishments comparing his head-to-head 2007 Soundscan battle with Kanye West.
“50 Cent is one of the all time greatest [rappers],” Reid explained. “He’s one of the greats. First of all, he had a great voice and as a rapper, an amazing voice. He was authentic, he is also a great song writer, right? So they were evenly matched for the sort of battle. And I think Kanye, at that point, had the better song…I like to believe it’s always the great song. It’s always the song…[But] a good artist with a great song can be a one-hit wonder. It can be number one…Some of the greats don’t always go for a number one record…Or Jay-Z who in my opinon is the Frank Sinatra of our day has had many, many hits and has huge success but Jay told me he had never had a number one pop record. But he has more number one albums than any artist alive…But I do know he won’t jeopardize his integrity to get a number one record. (The Charlie Rose Show)
Along with handling multiple rap acts, Reid recently gave fans an update on whether Jay’s Blueprint III would be released on Live Nation or Def Jam.
“We still have an arrangement with Jay-Z,” he said in an interview. “We’re hoping we could figure it out. If we can’t figure it out, it won’t lessen my interest in his record and in his career…To me, the Blueprint 3 is an important album, however it comes out. If it comes out in a cereal box, it doesn’t matter to me. As long as it’s one of the great records of our time…I wanna know that artists like Jay-Z and business people like Jay-Z can have a 40-year career…I wanna know that hip-hop has the legs, and it wasn’t a trend in music. It wasn’t something that can come and go, but it will stick around and last.” (MTV News)
Covering a variety of music acts, Reid has always expressed his focus on developing artists’ careers.
“I love being in the middle of it,” Reid said in an interview. “Exactly. I live for it. Over my entire career I have always identified talent, whether I was an artist at the beginning of my career, as a writer and producer, as label head. For the most part it has been the same thing. I live–and I have always lived–to identify with and associate with artists that I’ve found incredible.” (Ebony)
Reid is responsible for helping guide the careers of past and present urban stars.
L.A. Reid is the co-founder of LaFace Records. He and Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds were responsible for helping bring TLC, Usher, Ciara, Outkast, Dido, Avril Lavigne and Pink to multi-platinum album sells. He was once appointed president of Arista Records from 2000 to 2004. He soon was appointed as Chairman of Island Def Jam Music Group. As chairman of Island Def Jam, Reid is responsible for bringing R&B group 112, and rapper Young Jeezy. He is also responsible for appointing rapper Jay-Z as president of Def Jam and Def Soul Records, and guiding singer Mariah Carey’s comeback with her 2005 hit album, The Emancipation of Mimi.

A woman stunned onlookers by jumping into a polar bear enclosure at a zoo Friday, suffering serious injuries after one of the four bears inside attacked her.
Zookeepers at the Berlin Zoo fought off the attacking bear from outside the enclosure as they pulled the German woman, 32, to safety, Britain’s Daily Telegraph reported.
The woman, who jumped into a moat in the enclosure, suffered serious bites to her arms and legs. In December, a man who jumped into the same enclosure also survived after zookeepers baited the polar bears away with beef. It was not clear why the woman jumped into the area.

Sidetracked for years by label disputes that held up scores of material, Brooklyn duo M.O.P. has finally confirmed the release of their first album of new material in 9 years.
Christened The Foundation, the new LP will represent a return to M.O.P.’s 90’s form.
Serving as co-executive producer will be DJ Premier, with additional production from DR Period, Nottz, Buckwild, Red Spider, and Fizzy Womack (Lil Fame).
Now that the long wait is over, the Brownsville natives are thankful to their fans of nearly two decades for their patience and faithfulness to the M.O.P. brand.
To make up for lost time, the duo plan to have The Foundation serve as the first salvo in an ambitious plan to release 3 albums over the next 12 months. Read more after the jump…
“I told y’all we would outlast both George Bushes,” Billy Danze quipped to AllHipHop.com.
In order to release the new album, the group had to first secure a release from their June 2005 contract with 50 Cent’s G Unit Records.
According to an M.O.P. spokesman, both parties remain on good terms, and an agreement was finalized which will give G Unit Records financial compensation for the new project.
M.O.P. achieved the greatest commercial success on their last major-label album, 2000’s Warriorz.
Helmed by the anthemic singles “Ante Up” and “Cold As Ice,” the LP sold close to one million copies.
At press time, The Foundation is set for release on June 30 through E1, formerly Koch Records.
Multi-platinum rapper Ludacris confirmed the addition of fellow Atlanta rapper Lil’ Scrappy to his Disturbing Tha Peace imprint during a performance in their city Sunday night (April 5).
The announcement comes two weeks after rumors surfaced about Scrappy’s departure from Lil’ Jon’s BME Recordings and Warner Brothers Records.
As one of the headliners of the “No1 in the South Got Swagga Like Us” concert, which took place at Atlanta’s Phillips Arena Sunday evening, Luda made the news official to a crowd which had gathered to see him perform alongside Young Jeezy, Plies, Rick Ross and others.
Following the announcement, Ludacris brought Scrappy to the stage to perform his 2006 hit single “Money in the Bank.”
According to DTP CEO Chaka Zulu, the new deal also brings Scrappy’s label, G’s Up, into the DTP family.
